TSA: Hawaii agent made mistake about breast pump

LIHUE, Hawaii -- The Transportation Security Administration in Hawaii says an agent was wrong to tell a nursing mother she couldn't board an airplane with her breast pump.

The TSA tells KITV the agent at the Kauai airport mistakenly told Amy Strand she could only bring the pump onboard if the bottles contained milk.

She was allowed to board after pumping in a bathroom and showing the full bottles to the agent.
Strand was traveling home to Maui with her 9-month-old daughter Wednesday when her pump raised questions during screening.

She asked for a private place to pump and was told to go to the women's restroom. Strand says the only outlet was next to a sink facing a wall of mirrors, so she had to stand in front of others.
