Two officers who dragged passenger off United flight fired

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. United settled a lawsuit with Dao as a result, and made changes in its flight policies to reduce overbooking, better incentivize volunteer bumping, and end the mandatory bumping of boarded customers for traveling crew members. The inspector general's report said "the investigation also uncovered that the employees made misleading statements and deliberately removed material".

The department suspended two other officers - one for five days and one for two days - for the deliberate removal of facts from a report.

In a report released on Tuesday (17 October), Chicago's inspector general Jospeh Ferguson said a third officer resigned and a fourth received a five-day suspension, which was shortened to two days following an appeal.

One officer was sacked for escalating the conflict, while another was sacked for removing information about the incident from an employee report, according to the city inspector general.

The incident started when David Dao, a 69-year-old doctor, refused to give up his seat to make room for airline personnel. They were identified only as an aviation security officer and a sergeant.

The aviation department confirmed that a review of its policies and procedures was being conducted.

Of the two officers who were fired, one was an aviation security sergeant and one was a security officer. The incident was a public relations disaster for the airline, which apologized for what happened. The incident was filmed by several passengers and quickly went viral.

Two airport security officers have been sacked for their part in the forcible removal of a passenger from a plane that left him bleeding from a broken nose and two broken teeth. "I hope he becomes a poster child for all of us, someone's got to", Demetrio said at that news conference, noting that Dao would need reconstructive surgery for damaged sinuses.
