David Dao

David Dao is a doctor who was dragged off an United Airlines flight departing Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport in April 2017. The airline reportedly requested for passengers to voluntarily give up their seats in exchange for compensation to make room for employees. When not enough passengers volunteered, Dao was forcibly removed from the aircraft by law enforcement. The disturbing incident was captured on cell phone video and quickly went viral and made news headlines. The video shows Dao being dragged down the aisle. He appeared to be bloodied and injured. Dao said he was in a rush to get home to Kentucky because he was scheduled to perform surgery the following day. United CEO Oscar Munoz faced backlash for the wording of his apology to Dao.
