The customer dragged from a United Airlines flight has been identified as Dr. David Dao, a 69-year-old grandfather who has raised four doctors:
DailyMail.com can reveal Dr Dao is a father of five and a grandfather, who specializes in internal medicine. Four of his five children are doctors.
His wife Teresa, 69, is a pediatrican who trained at Ho Chi Minh University in Saigon and also practices in Elizabethtown, Kentucky - about 40 miles south of Louisville.
Their eldest son Tim, 34, practices medicine in Texas; their second son Ben, 31, is a medical graduate; their daughter Christine, 33, is a doctor in Durham, NC; and their youngster daughter Angela, 27, is a medical graduate of the University of Kentucky.
Here is a new video that emerged after Dr. Dao re-boarded the flight after his stunningly violent removal:
Even after all the emerging videos, United CEO Oscar Munoz released another statement backing the United crew and the Chicago Aviation Security Officers who plainly resorted to violence to remove a paying customer from the flight so last-minute United staffers could be on the flight instead. United is getting more than a public relations black eye from the incident. Their stock is making a descent this morning:
Shares in United Continental Holdings Inc. were falling about 3% in morning action on Tuesday, as the airline continued to draw flak for having a passenger forcibly dragged off a plane Sunday.
If the carrier’s stock is that much lower at the closing bell, United UAL, -3.28% will have roughly $675 million wiped off its market capitalization. The company’s market cap was $22.5 billion as of Monday’s close, according to FactSet data.
Early Tuesday ahead of the market’s open, United shares had been down by as much as 6% premarket. A fall of that magnitude would erase about $1.4 billion from the company’s market cap.
Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly is still on the air and his reaction to the violent removal? He laughed. On air. Think he’d be laughing if it happened to him or one of his golfing buddies? WATCH O’Reilly’s hideous reaction:
