Hannah Cohen is a 19 year old who is being treated for a brain tumor at Memphis's St Jude's Hospital, who is "partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed, and easily confused" -- and who was subjected to a violent beating during a secondary TSA screening while flying home to Chatanooga, TN for the holidays.
Cohen's mother, who was restrained by airport police during the beating, says she tried to explain to the TSA agents that her daughter didn't understand what they were asking of her.
Hannah Cohen finished the episode in jail. Her charges were eventually dropped. Her family is suing the airport and the TSA.
“She's trying to get away from them but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. There was blood everywhere,” said Cohen.
Hannah was arrested, booked and on the night she should have been celebrating the end of her treatment, she was locked up in Jail East.
“Here we were with nowhere to go, not even a toothbrush, our bags had gone to Chattanooga,” said Cohen.
