By 3 p.m., Badayos finally got inside the inspection area. Two female jail guards asked her to lift her shirt and she was frisked from the breast down. She was then asked to pull her pants and underwear down to her knees. She was instructed to bend forward and hop three times. One of the guards placed a mirror between her legs and asked her to emit a cough. It was only then she was allowed to go.
