Double Amputee Humiliated, A double amputee was allegedly humiliated by TSA staff as he attempted to take a flight to San Diego last week.
Marine Cpl. Toran Gaal, who is a double amputee assigned to the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Pendleton, was allegedly asked to get out of his wheelchair and move by a TSA staff member, according to an eye-witness.
Gaal, who lost both his legs to an Improvised Explosive Device in Sangin Province, Afghanistan, and some fellow injured Marines had traveled to the Phoenix area last week for a baseball spring training fundraiser. However, it was upon his return flight that the incident reportedly took place.
The reports have sparked outrage among some, and Congressman Duncan Hunter has now written a letter to the TSA demanding answers. In the letter he describes how Gaal's legs were exposed and removed in the exchange with the TSA staff, and he believes this "humiliated" the marine.
However, the TSA has responded to the criticism saying that closed-circuit television footage at Arizona's Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on March 13 showed Gaal going through a TSA checkpoint, and that the same footage did not show him being forced to remove his prosthetic legs.
The TSA has told the Arizona Republic in a statement: "Preliminary review of CCTV indicates there was no removal of prosthetic limbs."
