Officers Fired in United Incident

Two Aviation Officers Fired, Two Suspended For Dragging Doctor Off United Flight

Two officers who dragged a doctor from a USA flight have been fired while a third resigned, officials say.

The security officers were then summoned by the airline staff and surrounded Dao's seat, and forcefully dragged him off the flight amid protests and dismay from fellow passengers.

Inspector General Joseph Ferguson's office revealed the disciplinary action in its quarterly report on Tuesday. They were identified only as an aviation security officer and a sergeant.

As he was pulled from his seat, Dr Dao's head hit an armrest and as he was dragged down the aisle with his face streaming with blood from a broken nose, his glasses slipped off and his shirt rode up his chest.

Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans announced earlier this year that Chicago's $19 million-a-year force of 292 unarmed aviation police officers would survive the passenger dragging fiasco, but only after their roles are minimized, their training is overhauled and the word "police" is stripped from their badges, uniforms and vehicles. Two more officers have been suspended.

He took five-fers in each of three Tests in the Caribbean earlier this year as well in both matches this series. The hosts will be hoping to level the two-match Test series with a win over Sri Lanka, with two days to play.

Dr David Dao was dragged off a flight in order to make room for crew members to board the plane.

The investigation additionally stated that employees had made misleading statements and "deliberately removed material facts from their reports". In July, it decided the Chicago Police Department would respond to airport disturbance calls over security officers.

The Aviation Department is also subsequently reviewing its policies in reaction to the investigation's recommendations.

The fiasco became a huge public relations headache for United. Munoz also said the carrier will not allow police to remove a passenger from an aircraft again in situations like that one. The scene had been filmed by other passengers, made the rounds of the web and led to a wave of worldwide condemnation.

"United has taken full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, without attempting to blame others, including the city of Chicago", Dao's attorney, Thomas Demetrio, said in a statement. "I hope he becomes a poster child for all of us, someone's got to", Demetrio said at that news conference, noting that Dao would need reconstructive surgery for damaged sinuses.
