By now, you’ve probably seen that horrifying (and frankly hair-raising) video of a man being dragged off a United Airlines flight by his limbs.
The man was on a flight from Chicago to Louisville in the U.S but had to be removed from the plane after he was told that the flight had been overbooked.
Despite how the man was shouting and exclaiming that he needed to go home, three airline officers forcefully dragged him down the aisle to remove him off the plane anyway.
Watch the video below:
A United Airlines spokesperson has confirmed the incident and said, “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 apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.”
Airlines often allow for overbooked flights namely because they believe some passengers will not be able to make their flights but as it turns out, United was wrong about this one.
However, this isn’t the only horrifying incident that has happened throughout the years. Here are nine other scary airline incidents you ought to know about.
