Dem Introduces Passenger-Friendly Bill After Dao Incident

Kelvin Reese | 26 April, 2017, 09:19

Officer James Long, who first tried to pull Dr Dao, wrote that he had his arms "folded tightly" but when they tried to move him he "started swinging his arms up and down with a closed fist".

Long also added that David knocked away the officer's arm "which caused the subject to fall, hit, and injured his mouth on the armrest on the other side of the aisle".

United told NBC News on Monday: "Our focus right now is reviewing our policies and making this right for our customers so something like this doesn't happen again".

United Airlines chief executive Oscar Munoz apologised, saying: "[The incident] has elicited many responses from all of us: "outrage, anger, disappointment.

The incident, which was videotaped by other passengers at the O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, sparked a national outcry and three of the involved aviation officers were subsequently placed on leave, according to the aviation department.

The encounter, captured on videos taken by other passengers, and the airline company's handling of the aftermath set off an global outrage and a prolonged public relations nightmare for United.

Reports state that after Dao was dragged off the plane he rushed back on board.

A Department of Aviation report of the incident, using statements from aviation officers involved, said that officers were trying to persuade Mr. Dao to leave in a "calm manner" but he refused and said he didn't care if he was arrested. The officers said in the reports they repeatedly asked Dao to leave the plane after airline officials said he and his wife had been selected by a computer to give up their seats when no one volunteered to leave. Ferguson has the authority to recommend disciplining or firing city employees, although the final decision will be up to Evans - who reports to Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Long's grip failed as Dao swung-which is when Dao's face plunged into the armrest, Rodriguez said in the report.

There was a record number of overtime games in the first round with 18. "I don't think anyone is regretting or feeling sorry". Kreider struggled most of the series, but did have a big third period and overtime in Game 5 to help NY win the game.

Dr. Dao's attorney, Thomas Demetrio, called his client a "pussycat" and said, "there is nothing he did that should have caused United to bring in the storm troopers that came in".

He suffered concussion, a broken nose and lost two front teeth. "This is a real, real problem and the mother told me point blank her concern was her child, who nearly got hit by the stroller".

Long said he approached Dr. David Dao to ask the 69-year-old physician to get off the plane.

"I'm not getting off", Dao aggressively told officers, according to Rodriguez's report, via CNN.

The suspension stemmed from a January 29 incident in which the officer was accused of insubordination and failure to obey a direct order, records show.

When both Rodriguez and Smith were unsuccessful in convincing Dao to de-plane, Long attempted to forcibly remove Dao by placing both hands under his armpits and lifting him up.

On April 17, Deputy Commissioner Jeffrey Redding sent a memo to all aviation security personnel on the department's use of force policy.
