Passenger dragged off overbooked United flight – CNN News

A man's refusal to give up his seat on an overbooked United Airlines flight led to a disturbing scene Sunday that has travelers up in arms over airline policies. The Department of Transportation said it will review the incident, in which a passenger was forcibly removed from the Louisville, Kentucky-bound United flight 3411 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The incident has prompted one security officer's suspension and created a publicity nightmare for United. Several passengers recorded the incident on their phones and posted video on social media showing three Chicago Department of Aviation security officers dragging the man, who has not been identified, down the aisle by the arms and legs while other passengers shout in protest. He continued to resist after he was removed and ran back onto the airplane, face bloodied from the encounter. &'8220;It was very traumatic,&'8221; passenger Jade Kelley said. She did not witness the entire event but she said the sound of the screams still haunt her. &'8220;It was horrible. I had trouble sleeping last night and hearing the video again gives me chills.&'8221; The incident sparked criticism of a system that allows airlines to involuntarily boot passengers from flights. United was acting within their rights and following policy. Then, the situation turned physical. United asked passengers to give up their seats voluntarily for compensation. Four crew members needed to get on the flight in order to work another one in Louisville or else that flight would be canceled, airline spokeswoman Maddie King said. When no one volunteered, the airline was forced into an &'8220;involuntary de-boarding situation,&'8221; airline spokesman Charlie Hobart said. United weighs a number of factors to determine which passengers would leave the flight, such as connecting flights and how long the delay will leave the customer at an airport, Hobart said. United employees explained the situation to the man several times, Hobart said. When he refused they followed Department of Transportation protocol and called local law enforcement to forcibly remove him from the plane. Passenger Tyler Bridges said the request for volunteers came after everyone had boarded. It was easy to understand why no one responded &'8212; it was Sunday night and the next flight was not until the following afternoon, he said. Bridges said two officers tried to calmly talk the man out of his seat before a third approached him in an aggressive manner. The officer told him he had to get off the plane, and when he resisted, the officer grabbed him out of his seat and carried him out with the other officers. The man hit his head on an armrest, Bridges said. He yelled that he was a doctor and that he was being profiled for being Chinese. The scene left everyone unsettled, including children who started crying, Bridges said. &'8220;It was pretty shocking that it got to the level that it got to. In part that's the man's fault, when the police came on he shouldn't have resisted, he should have just left. But it was a pretty unbelievable scene with them grabbing him and pulling off,&'8221; he said. Overbooking is not illegal, and most airlines do it in anticipation of no-shows, according to the US Department of Transportation. If no one volunteers, the airline can select passengers for removal based on criteria such as check-in time or the cost of a ticket, according to the US Department of Transportation's Fly-Rights. In an internal memo, CEO Oscar Munoz said the crew members approached the gate agents after the flight was fully boarded and said they needed to board the flight. They sought volunteers before commencing &'8220;involuntary denial of boarding process,&'8221; offering up to $1,000 in compensation. When approached, the passenger &'8220;raised his voice and refused to comply with crew member instructions,&'8221; Munoz said. He grew &'8220;more disruptive and belligerent&'8221; with each request, leaving agents with no choice to call security officers. He continued to resist even after he was removed, running back into the plane, Munoz said. Passengers shot video of him with blood streaming down his face. &'8220;Our employees followed established procedures for dealing with situations like this. While I deeply regret this situation arose, I also emphatically stand behind all of you, and I want to commend you for continuing to go above and beyond to ensure we fly right,&'8221; he said. &'8220;I do, however, believe there are lessons we can learn from this experience, and we are taking a close look at the circumstances surrounding this incident.&'8221; Munoz issue a statement calling the incident &'8220;upsetting&'8221; and apologized &'8220;for having to re-accommodate&'8221; customers. &'8220;Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation,&'8221; The Chicago Department of Aviation said in a statement that the incident &'8220;was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure and the actions of the aviation security officer are obviously not condoned by the Department.&'8221; That officer has been placed on leave effective today pending a review of the situation, the statement added. The four crew members did indeed board the plane, and it wasn't pretty, Bridges said. Passengers berated them, told them they should be ashamed of themselves and embarrassed to work for this company. &'8220;They just sat down quietly, it was super tense on the [&'].....»»

Tied up: Giannis tip-in lifts Bucks over Celtics in Game 4

By Genaro C. Armas, Associated Press MILWAUKEE (AP) — After losing a 20-point lead to the Boston Celtics, the Milwaukee Bucks were determined not to lose another playoff game. Leave it to All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo to come up with a big play in the final seconds on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with five seconds left, and the Bucks held on for a 104-102 win to tie their first-round playoff series at two games apiece. The Greek Freak wins it!!#FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/gQXjPcTbvS — Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) April 22, 2018 Boston's Marcus Morris missed a 14-footer at the buzzer with Khris Middleton's hand in his face to seal a nail-biting win for the Bucks. Seconds earlier, the 6'11" Antetokounmpo jumped and reached up with his left arm around Boston's Jayson Tatum to put back Malcolm Brogdon's missed layup for the game-winner. "It's a heck of play," coach Joe Prunty said. Game 5 is Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time) in Boston. Antetokounmpo added seven rebounds and five assists, while Middleton scored 23 points. The Bucks' two best players were clutch in the closing seconds of a tense victory, another sign of maturity for the one of the league's up-and-coming teams. "One of the most important things that we can carry from this game moving forward is that we stayed disciplined and we trusted one another," Antetokounmpo said. It could just as easily have fallen apart for Milwaukee after losing a 20-point lead with 7:37 left in the third quarter. Jaylen Brown had 34 points for the Celtics, while Tatum added 21. Tatum's 18-footer with 52 seconds left gave the Celtics a brief 100-99 lead. He just couldn't hold off Antetokounmpo on the other end for the decisive tip-in. The disappointing end for the Celtics overshadowed their spirited rally from a 65-45 deficit. Play got chippy and the Celtics limited the Bucks' transition game. They came up one basket short at the end. Antetokounmpo "made a great tip-in and he was battling for the ball. That's what great players do," coach Brad Stevens said. Both teams traded clutch buckets down the stretch. After Tatum's long jumper, Brogdon hit a transition triple from the corner for a 102-100 lead with 33 seconds left. Al Horford followed with two foul shots to tie the game at 102 with 29 seconds remaining. They couldn't send the game into overtime. Morris bent over in frustration near the Boston bench after his fadeaway hit the rim. "We got the look we wanted ... It's a shot that [Morris] can make 10 out of 10 times," Brown said. "It didn't go in tonight. So Game 5, keep moving forward." TIP-INS Celtics: Stevens kept his starting five intact after the team never recovered from a disastrous first quarter in Game 3. Stevens said he would likely only make a switch for matchup purposes. ... Boston ended with a 43-36 edge on the boards. ... Morris finished with 13 points and shot 4-of-14. Bucks: Starting C John Henson missed a second straight game with a sore back. ... The Bucks went with the same starting five as Game 3, with Zeller replacing Henson and Brogdon starting for Tony Snell. ... Jabari Parker led a vigorous effort off the bench with 16 points and seven rebounds. Backup C Thon Maker blocked five shots and played most of the fourth quarter. OFF THE BENCH The Bucks' reinvigorated bench outscored the Celtics' reserves 31-15. Parker, in particular, gave the team a lift in the first half with perhaps his best defensive play of the year after forcing turnovers on two straight Boston possessions at one point. QUOTABLE "We played great in the second half. We played great in the first six minutes of the game. The 18 minutes that ended the first half were not good. They had a lot to do with that." — Stevens. BLOCK PARTY The Bucks set a franchise playoff high with 14 blocks, eclipsing the previous high of 13 set in Game 3. The 7'1" Maker has turned into disruptive presence after playing sparingly in the first two games. He's getting extended minutes because Henson's injury. "Thon is playing extremely assertive. The blocked shots are going to stand out because that's something somebody can see on the stat sheet," Prunty said. STAT LINES Brown picked up the second 30-point game of the postseason after scoring just one 30-point game in the regular season. He was 13-of-24 from the field but 2-of-10 from the three-point arc. ... The Bucks shot at least 52 percent from the field for the third straight game. UP NEXT Game 5 is Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) at the TD Garden in Boston......»»
