(KTNV) -- A set of parents are outraged after TSA agents detained their crying three-year-old wheelchair-bound daughter.
The family were on what was supposed to be a fun family trip to Disneyland when the little girl, Lucy Forck, was chosen to receive an additional screening, which included a pat down and wheelchair swab.
TSA agents even took away Lucy's stuffed animal, which caused her to burst into tears.
At one point, Lucy's mother was ordered to stop taping the incident.
The TSA defended their actions by saying that all passengers in wheelchairs must go through addition screening. However, they said they should not have tried to pat the little girl down and they have apologized.
They also admitted that they should not have told Lucy's mother to stop filming.
