Just two months after witnesses recorded the moment a 69-year-old man was dragged off a United Airlines flight to make room for crew, a new video is threatening to embroil the airline in scandal once again.
The nearly three-minute video, obtained by KPRC, shows a United Airlines customer service representative pushing a 71-year-old man to the ground and knocking him unconscious after the elderly man asked a question about his boarding pass.
In fact, not a single United employee came to the man's aide. It was only when another passenger, a nurse catching a flight, stopped to help the man that an employee finally called 911 for help.
The victim, grandfather and frequent flyer Ronald Tigner, is now suing the airline and the employee who shoved him - Alejandro Anastasia - for negligence. He is seeking more than $1million in damages.
