A father was outraged when Transportation Security Administration officers gave his two young children full-body pat downs at a U.S. airport. The incident was caught on video.

In a one-and-a-half minute video shared by YouTube user khanzahir100 on Friday, a man says that two TSA agents subjected his two-year-old son and six-year-old daughter to pat downs because he had been selected for a security check, which he says happens often due to his name.

The traveler can be heard asking why it is necessary to screen his children, to which the officers said that they boy and girl had come in contact with their father.

The video shows the young boy looking nervous as a male TSA screener tried to perform a full-body pat down by gliding his gloved hands down his legs. The video then shows the young girl standing on a mat in front of a kneeling female TSA officer who feels her back with her palms. The officer also brushed the girl's buttocks with the back on her hand and inspects her legs. She then examines the girl's chest while the little girl has her arms stretched out. The woman tries to smile and make funny faces to make the 6-year-old girl calm down.

It is not clear what the name of the father was or at what airport the screening took place and when.

According to the TSA website, the "TSA has modified screening procedures for children 12 and under that reduces the likelihood of a pat-down." The TSA supposedly changed its policy for patting down children in 2011 following an incident in which a video showed a 6-year-old girl getting a full-body pat down by a TSA officer in New Orleans.  There was outrage after that video was released.

The video has been viewed more than 49,000 times since posted to YoutTube on Friday. The video was originally reported on by Infowars.
