A video of a man forcibly being removed from a United Airlines flight has gone viral online.
According to WHAS 11, the flight was reportedly leaving from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday night when the incident occurred.
The video was shared on social media by another passenger, who talked about what happened on the flight in detail.
According to reports, the flight had been oversold and some passengers were asked to voluntarily give up their seats, including the man in the video. The man refused to give up his seat and police were reportedly called to remove him.
The video was tweeted by a passenger, Jayse Anspach, who said, “United overbooked and wanted 4 of us to volunteer to give up our seats for personnel that needed to be at work the next day.”
Anspach also said, “It looked like he was knocked out because he went limp and quiet and they dragged him out of the plane like a rag doll.”
Another passenger said, “…kids were crying and people are disturbed.”
United said to WHAS 11 in a statement, “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.”
