Mom Upset over Handling of Daughter in Wheelchair (VIDEO)

Mom Upset over Handling of Daughter in Wheelchair (VIDEO)

Have you ever seen your child hurt or upset and been unable to comfort her? Tammy Daniels had that difficult experience this week at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with her 12-year-old daughter Shelbi Wasler. 

As WFAA reports, Shelbi, who has brittle bone disease and uses a wheelchair, was detained by TSA officials for a full hour after her hands tested positive for explosives. Her mom, meanwhile, wasn't allowed to approach and comfort her overwhelmed daughter, but she was able to record what was going on.

Shelbi's family keeps chickens, and officials eventually determined that the substance on her hands was likely fertilizer.

"I am by no means undermining our safety in the air," Daniels told WFAA. "After 9/11, by no means am I doing that. But, when it comes to children, common sense is not in a textbook."
