It was an interesting morning for mom Jennifer Williamson and son Aaron. Trying to catch a flight at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on March 26, Aaron was stopped by Transportation Security Administration agents for a security check. Aaron suffers from Sensory Processing Disorder, and Jennifer said it was uncomfortable and traumatizing for him to receive a lengthy patdown. Her over two minute video is going viral, and Jennifer said the family was detained for over an hour and ended up missing their flight. She also claims Aaron did not set off any alarms and passed through the metal detector just fine.

In response, the TSA said in a statement that, "All approved procedured were followed to resolve an alarm of the passenger’s laptop."

The TSA said Williamson and her son were only kept for 45 minutes while three bags were searched.

“In total, the pat-down took approximately two minutes, and was observed by the mother and two police officers who were called to mitigate the concerns of the mother," TSA said.

Biggest Oscars Flub Ever! 'La La Land' Mistakenly Announced As Best Picture Winner

It's the moment from the Academy Awards 2017 that everyone is talking about, and it happened right as the show ended. "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the "Best Picture" winner instead of "Moonlight." Presenter Warren Beatty seemed to do a double take when reading his card before handing it to his co-presenter Faye Dunaway. Biggest #Oscars mix up of all time? Watch the full play-by-play: pic.twitter.com/RT2zGiR798 — Hollywood Reporter (@THR) February 27, 2017 Unfortunately, the "La La Land" cast started to gather on stage and give their acceptance speeches before those back stage realized the awful mistake. "La La Land" producers then announced they had actually lost and told the "Moonlight" crew to come on stage. It turns out, Beatty had the envelope for "Best Actress" with Emma Stone's name on it for her performance in "La La Land," and we now know that there are two envelopes made for every category with a duplicate just in case. The firm behind the flub, PricewaterhouseCoopers, issued an apology hours later. pic.twitter.com/oGJkXytnQ2 — PwC LLP (@PwC_LLP) February 27, 2017 The mistake is drawing comparisons to Steve Harvey's gaffe in 2015 when announcing the wrong "Miss Universe" winner.
