Passenger videos from a recent United Airlines flight show a man being forcefully removed from the plane after refusing to give up his seat. The flight was overbooked, and the airline randomly asked passengers to voluntarily give up their seats to make room for staff. The video shows the man repeating, "I have to go home," as blood comes out of his mouth and security officers drag him to the front of the plane. United Airlines said in a statement that the man defied security officers, and even ran back onto the plane after he was removed. Although the airline is standing behind the actions of staff, an apology was issued.
