Some incidents occur that get the whole world united. A recent event of the removal of the passenger from the flight outraged the whole world, after the video of the unfortunate incident gone viral. This event occurred on Sunday 10th, April, 2017 in Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
Why this man was Removed from Flight?
According to the reports, the flight was overbooked. And the management of the airline had to remove about four passengers before the taking off of the flight. Apparently, a computerized procedure finalized four names to leave the flight. The passengers were even offered a big amount of about $800 to leave the flight. Dr. David Dao (an Asian), a cardiologist by profession, refused to give up his seat. Reports suggest, some heated arguments were exchanged between the flight official and doctor Dao. When things didn’t turn out as planned, the airline management had to call on the police. And here started the whole bloody game.
The man (David Dao) was forced to leave the seat, and while trying to secure his seat, the man got injured and had blood flowed across his face (that can be seen in the video below). The police officials dragged the man so badly out of the flight, even the passengers witnessing (some even filming), were not feeling good about it. Ultimately, the man was yanked out of his seat and from the plane as well.
How the world responded to this unfortunate incident?
The video of the man dragged out of plane has gone viral across the globe. And people are protesting for such inhumane and uncivilized behavior. This is something unacceptable under any circumstances. More voices are being heard from China and the Chinese community all over the world as Dr. David Dao is a Chinese by origin.
Yesterday we have seen a tiny miny apology message from the CEO of United Airlines. Here is what he has to say in an apology posted on the twitter handle;
Where is Dr. David Dao Now?
The man removed from the flight was taken to hospital for immediate care as he was bleeding terribly. Later, the family of David Dao has released this letter of thanks for everyone who supported them; [Read here: What you need to Know about Traveling to Fair Isle]
Chicago attorney Stephen L. Golan states, “The family of Dr. Dao wants the world to know that they are very appreciative of the outpouring of prayers, concern and support they have received. Currently, they are focused only on Dr. Dao’s medical care and treatment.” Check out the video here.
