|OUTRAGE OVER BUMPED PASSENGER|
A major U.S. airline is drawing criticism after video posted online shows security officers dragging a passenger off an overbooked flight.
The incident happened before a United Airlines flight departed Chicago's O'Hare Airport on Sunday evening. The airline asked some passengers to give up their seats in exchange for vouchers and a hotel stay. When nobody volunteered, the airline randomly chose four people and asked them to get off the plane.
When one man refused, airport police were called to remove him. Video taken by another passenger shows the officers grabbing the screaming man by his arms and dragging him down the aisle.
The man later returned briefly to the cabin with blood on his face. He said he was a doctor and needed to see patients in the morning. He was then removed again from the plane.
The airline's CEO described the event as "upsetting" and apologized for "having to re-accommodate" the customers.
