Two officials fired after United dragging scandal

The disciplinary action is contained in Ferguson's quarterly report that was released on Tuesday.

As always, the names of the fired employees were withheld. Evans said aviation security officers would still be able to board planes in medical emergencies.

Remember when Louisville doctor David Dao was physically dragged off an overbooked United flight back in April, for the heinous offense of refusing to give up his seat? The other challenged his suspension, which was reduced to two days.

Two officers who dragged a doctor from a USA flight have been fired while a third resigned, officials say.

Major change to timeline of events in Las Vegas shooting
Footage captured the moment that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Last week, police said Paddock had shot at concertgoers for 10 minutes and stopped firing around 10:15 p.m.

Instead of identifying the four officers, Ferguson described the now-widely-known circumstances that gave Chicago and United a black eye around the world.

The report also noted that two security officers tried to cover for each other. One of the officers yanked Dao out of the seat when he refused to leave, and dragged him down the aisle.

Officers also "made misleading statements and deliberately removed material facts from their reports", according to the inspector general's office.

In July, the department said future airport disturbances would be handled by city police, not aviation security officers.

The aviation department is reviewing its policies and procedures and is expected to file a report early next year.

Three law enforcement officers who dragged a doctor off a United Airlines' flight in April are no longer in their jobs.

The incident left Dao with injuries that his attorneys describe as a broken nose, two chipped teeth and a sinus problem that will require surgery.

One officer was sacked for escalating "a non-threatening situation into a physically violent one" and for the injuries caused by his "excessive force". In addition, passengers on the flight, which was delayed about three hours, received refunds.

Mr Dao's lawyer Thomas Demetrio said his client was "neither vindictive nor happy", adding: "There is a lesson to be learned here for police officers at all levels". He was joined by the passenger's daughter. Dao later sued the airline and settled for an an undisclosed amount. The settlement included an agreement not to seek damages from beleaguered Chicago taxpayers. The incident was filmed by several passengers and quickly went viral. "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.
