Passenger Dragged Out Of United Airlines Flight

In a scene that sparked widespread outrage online, United Airlines security employees forcibly removed a passenger from an overbooked flight on April 9. Mobile phone video shows the passenger being pulled out of his seat and dragged down the aisle. The CEO of United Airlines, Oscar Munoz, later defended his employees' decision to remove the passenger after no one volunteered to give up their seats on the flight leaving Chicago.
