Passenger Dragged by Force From a United Flight
Airport police bloodied a man’s lip as they pulled him out of his seat to make room for United employees flying standby.
On 10 April 2017, various news publications and social media users began sharing videos that showed a man being forcibly dragged off an airplane by airport police. The video was filmed by fellow passenger Audra Bridges, who posted it to Facebook one day earlier:Bridges, a passenger of United flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville, posted the video with the following caption:
Please share this video. We are on this flight. United airlines overbooked the flight. They randomly selected people to kick off so their standby crew could have a seat. This man is a doctor and has to be at the hospital in the morning. He did not want to get off. We are all shaky and so disgusted.
More videos emerged on 10 April 2017 of the unnamed passenger, apparently traumatized and bleeding from the mouth, repeating “Just kill me” again and again while someone tells him to relax:The man was apparently seated and ready for takeoff on the 9 April 2017 flight when United randomly selected him and his wife to make way for crew who needed to be in Louisville for a Monday departure. Witnesses reported on social media that he said he was a doctor who need to be back home to to see patients the following morning and refused to leave. He was then removed by force.
Bridges told the Louisville Courier-Journal that officials had said to passengers at the gate that the flight from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked, and offered them $400 and a hotel stay in exchange for giving up their seat:
