2 aviation cops who dragged doctor off United flight fired

A computer system glitch caused thousands of United Airlines flights throughout major airports to be grounded Wednesday morning. The issue was resolved by late morning with some ripple delays still being felt at airports throughout the country

United Airlines reached an out-of-court settlement with Dao in April, the amount of which was not disclosed.

According to Chicago Inspector General Joseph Ferguson, he determined that it was "excessive force" and the officers "escalated a non-threatening situation into a physically violent one". They were identified only as an aviation security officer and a sergeant.

United Airlines came under fire after video showed Dao being forcibly dragged from the flight at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

It's been six months since the incident but Chicago aviation officials chose to fire the two security officers after an internal investigation.

The second officer, on the other hand, was accused of making two conflicting statements which were found in two separate reports and were meant to mislead the investigation and throw it off-track.

The names of the two officers have yet to be revealed, meanwhile, there was a third involved who resigned following the incident, NBC reports.

The security officer who first pulled Dr. David Dao from his seat has been fired.

He urged Evans to "fully consider the serious issues identified" in his quarterly report during that review to make certain aviation security officers and their bosses "have a clear and consistent understanding of their roles and responsibilities-individually and in relation to CPD and other airport personnel".

Summoned by United, three unarmed aviation security officers boarded Flight 3411 and dragged a flailing and bloodied Dao down the aisle when the doctor refused to give up his seat for a United crew member who needed to get to Louisville.

The incident proved to be a PR disaster for United Airlines and the management headed by Oscar Munoz, who is the CEO, were forced to offer a public apology and begin an investigation into the embarrassing incident.

Thomas Demetrio, Dao's attorney, issued a statement Tuesday: "It is unfortunate the conduct of these two City aviation employees has resulted in their losing their jobs". The doctor, David Dao, suffered a broken nose, the loss of two teeth, and a concussion in an event that went viral on the Internet after it was captured by passengers' mobile phones.
