New Clip Surfaces Showing Moments Before Officers Violently Assault Asian Passenger

The saga of Dr. David Dao and United Airlines continues as a new video clip has surfaced showing the moments before the assault.

In a statement released by United’s CEO Oscar Munoz, he asserted that Dao was acting “disruptive and belligerent,” which is why security officers were called in to forcibly remove him.

Contrary to Munoz’s statement, Dao appears to be composed in the video. In the beginning, he can be heard asking the offer “Why did you choose me?” but is met with no reply.

We will update the story as new information comes to light.
