Leukemia patient in bandages embarrassed by Sea-Tac pat-down, says agent refused privacy

A leukemia patient making what she calls an "end-of-life" trip to Hawaii says she was embarrassed by security agents at the Seattle airport who refused her request for a private pat-down and made her lift her shirt and pull back her bandages.

Michelle Dunaj (dun-AY') also says an agent at Sea-Tac Airport opened a saline bag, contaminating fluid she needs to survive.

TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis tells KOMO-TV (http://is.gd/g6CfEw) it's against policy to deny a private screening for passengers who request it. The agency is investigating.

The security screening happened last week as the Detroit-area woman was traveling through Seattle to Hawaii.

Dunaj says she thought she had prepared, calling the airline ahead of time to request a wheelchair and ask how to send her medicines through security.
