A flight from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday was overbooked, so airline personnel forcibly removed an unwilling man from his seat. The crew had asked passengers to volunteer to take another flight, but decided to go after this man after he didn't volunteer.
The man had claimed to be a doctor with patients he needed to attend to in Louisville, so he refused to get up. What happened next is horrifying...
Other passengers were obviously outraged by the airline's behaviour, as you can see the man is bloodied while being dragged off the plane.
One passenger told WCNC News that "kids were crying and people are disturbed."
You can see in the next video how hard the man hits his head on the chair after being tugged at so hard, which is what causes him to bleed so excessively.
After the incident, United issued a statement:
Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologise for the overbook situation.
Reports claim that he was "eventually let back on the flight, thought he was reportedly bloody and disoriented from the encounter."
