Officer who dragged man from plane sues United Airlines

A former Chicago aviation security officer who was fired after dragging a man off a flight last year has filed a lawsuit against the airline and city. He was sacked after removing David Dao from the plane last April to make room for United Airlines employees. The ordeal led to demonstrations at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and turned into a public relations disaster for United Airlines. The 69-year-old Vietnamese-American physician was forcibly removed after refusing to give up his seat to airline employees on a flight from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky on 9 April last year. Dr Dao, who lost two front teeth, suffered a broken nose and a "Significant" concussion, later reached a settlement with United Airlines for an undisclosed amount of money.
