It’s a video that has gone viral on the web with over 980,000 hits on YouTube: A 3-year-old in a wheelchair, patted down by the TSA. It happened in 2010, but his dad - Chicago radio personality Matt Dubiel - posted it over the weekend after looking through old family videos.
Matt talks with Soledad O’Brien this morning on “Starting Point” to explain what happened, and why he chose to upload the video now.
He tells Soledad his son had a broken leg and could barely stand. And though the TSA agent was cautious with the child, he says his son was still scared by the experience.
The TSA has since changed the way it screens passengers under 12 years of age.
