United Passenger Stung By Scorpion On Board Flight, CBS News Reports

He also said that Dao's family and other passengers who witnessed him being taken off the flight will be compensated.

During a press conference on Thursday morning, the attorney told reporters that the City of Chicago bears responsibility as well.

"We're fine with United", said Robyn Walker as she picked up her luggage from the airport.

Dao's lawyers filed an emergency request with an IL state court on Wednesday to require United Continental Holdings Inc and the City of Chicago to preserve video recordings and other evidence related to the incident, which would be a precursor to a lawsuit.

Dao, who didn't attend the news conference, was released from a local hospital late Wednesday and will need reconstructive surgery, Demetrio said. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers.

Lawyers acting for the passenger have already filed an emergency request with an IL state court to require the carrier, United Continental Holdings Inc, and the City of Chicago to preserve video recordings and other evidence.

The final price to United for this incident is still yet to be determined, but the loss in value because of stock price reduction has been in the hundreds of millions of dollars. No one should ever be mistreated this way. I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened.

On Sunday night, United offered passengers $400 each, then $800 each, to voluntarily leave the flight, but no one was interested.

United says it randomly selected Dao because it needed to put crew members on the sold-out flight to Louisville, Kentucky. In 2015, an Alaska Airlines flight was forced to return to its origin airport in Los Angeles after a woman onboard was stung by a scorpion.

United Chief Executive Oscar Munoz is under pressure to contain a torrent of bad publicity and calls for boycotts against United, including in China, where people have been angered because Dao was an Asian-American passenger.

During the beating, Dao also lost teeth.

The scorpion encounter happened just days before a high-profile incident in which law enforcement officers were called to forcibly remove a ticketed passenger from a flight to make room for commuting United employees. "The United Airlines MEC is confident that the steps we are taking as a company will ensure this type of inexcusable event never happens again".

"There are no excuses", Alderman Michael Zalewski said. Bumping is more common at large hubs like Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, where Dao was violently removed from flight 3411 by Chicago aviation officers, Lamonaca said. While the facts and circumstances are still evolving, especially with respect to why this customer defied Chicago Aviation Security Officers the way he did, to give you a clearer picture of what transpired, I've included below a recap from the preliminary reports filed by our employees.
