Baby Patdown Followed Procedure, TSA Says

PRNewsFoto/Transportation Security Administration(WASHINGTON) -- Airport Security screeners may face a new round of scrutiny following the online posting of a picture showing two officers patting down a baby at the Kansas City International Airport.

The picture, posted on Twitter, has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.  It shows two security screeners patting down the baby as the infant's mother holds the child, face down, in her arms. 

In a statement, TSA says the agency has reviewed the screening and determined that proper procedure was followed.  The baby was selected for a pat down because a test of the child's stroller set off explosives detectors. 

TSA adds that the family was very cooperative.
