United Airlines Controversy: New Footage Shows Passenger’s Conversation With Security


New video footage has emerged of the United Airlines incident, and it shows the tense conversation leading up to the forcible removal of passenger Dr. David Dao

The video, shot by fellow passenger Joya Griffin Cummings, showed Dao speaking to security, who were asking him to exit the overbooked plane flying from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday, April 9. “I won’t go. I’m a physician. I have to work tomorrow, 8 o’clock,” he told the security personnel. The passenger appears to be talking on his cell phone at the same time and telling someone that he will “make a lawsuit against United Airlines.”

Dao argues with security and insists that he won’t get off. “No, I am not going. I am not going!” The officer replies, “Well, we’ll have to drag you.” Dao says, “Drag me then. I’m not going. I’m staying right here.” He adds to the person on the phone, “They’re trying to use force.”
