 Shocked
Video shows United worker shove elderly man to the floor

By Joshua Rhett Miller   New York Post  June 14, 2017 | 10:06am  Video 0:42

United Airlines has apologized to a 71-year-old grandfather who was pushed to the floor by an employee at an airport in Houston over a ticket dispute, leaving the man “there like a piece of garbage,” according to his attorney.

Footage of the incident at George Bush International Airport in July 2015 was broadcast late Tuesday by KPRC and shows Houston-based attorney Ronald Tigner being shoved to the floor by a male customer service rep just steps away from the ticket counter on July 21, 2015.  Read more...

United apologizes after 2015 video shows employee pushing 71-year-old passenger to floor

A Houston man is suing United Airlines and two of its employees in the 2015 incident. The video was broadcast Tuesday.  

  Jun 14, 2017  Samantha Schmidt  Comments 625  Video Duration: 5:01

• United Airlines issued an apology Tuesday after a video was released of a Houston-based employee pushing a 71-year-old passenger to the floor during an argument over a ticket. The man was left lying there motionless.   

• The confrontation took place about two years ago but was detailed in a lawsuit filed last week in Harris County, Tex. The airline is still facing fallout over an incident with David Dao, a passenger who was violently dragged off a flight in Chicago in April.

•   The video of the Texas pushing incident was obtained and broadcast Tuesday evening by Houston news station KPRC.  Read more…
