United Airlines Forcibly Drags Man Off Flight After He Didn’t Volunteer To Give Up His Seat - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not uncommon for airlines to overbook flights, but often times, when they do so, they offer incentives in the form of flight vouchers to persuade volunteers. However, what happens when no one wants to give up their seat? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #UnitedAirlines is back in the hot seat after a passenger caught the airline forcibly removing another passenger who did not volunteer to leave his seat on his own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jayse D. Anspach, a witness, took to Twitter to voice his complaint. According to Anspach, the incident occurred on United Flight 3411, which was going from Chicago to Louisville. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “#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,” tweeted Anspach. “No one volunteered, so United decided to choose for us. They chose an Asian doctor and his wife.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the witness, the doctor refused to volunteer because he had to work at the hospital the next day. When he declined to leave, United called security to force him off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “A couple airport security men forcefully pulled the doctor out of his chair and to the floor of the aisle. In so doing, the doctor's face was slammed against an armrest, causing serious bleeding from his mouth. 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..” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ United Airlines’ social media team gave a brief .....to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile) #logon #readmore

So basically United Airlines overbooked a flight, they asked if they had any volunteers who wanted to get off the flight. Nobody wanted to get off.. So United Airlines decided to choose who they wanted to get off. They asked this Asian couple to get off but they refused and allegedly when he wouldn't get off they had him removed with extreme force. Check out the video below

United Airlines’ social media team gave a brief explanation on Twitter. “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.”
