United apologizes after video shows employee pushing 71-year-old passenger to floor

A 71-year-old man is suing United Airlines for $1 million after he was pushed to the ground by an employee in 2015. The employee was charged with a felony of injuring an elderly individual. (KPRC)

United Airlines issued an apology Tuesday after a video was released of a Houston-based employee pushing a 71-year-old passenger to the floor during an argument over a ticket. The man was left lying there motionless.

The confrontation took place about two years ago but was detailed in a lawsuit filed last week in Harris County, Tex. The airline is still facing fallout over an incident with David Dao, a passenger who was violently dragged off a flight in Chicago in April.

The video of the Texas pushing incident was obtained and broadcast Tuesday evening by Houston news station KPRC.
