An additional video of a United passenger forcibly removed from his flight emerged Monday, apparently showing the bloodied passenger returning to the plane.
The man — who reportedly said he was a doctor and needed to get back to see patients in the morning — was forcibly removed after United overbooked a Sunday evening flight from Chicago to Louisville. According to passengers, United boarded the plane, and after no one accepted its offer to voluntarily give up their seats for four crew members, the airline said a computer would randomly select people. The man refused to leave, which led to security personnel dragging him from his seat.
The man who was captured on video being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight on Sunday suffered injuries to his face and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, the Chicago Police Department said in a statement to NBC News reporter Bradd Jaffy.
According to the statement, the man was removed by aviation officers after refusing to give up his seat on the overbooked flight, which was traveling from Chicago to Louisville.
Given the apparent evidence that Longhorn is a hacking group within the CIA, it’s interesting to take note of the group’s targets over the last several years. According to Symantec, the group has targeted governments and international organizations in attacks.
Targets of Longhorn have ranged from individuals and organizations working in the financial, telecom, energy, aerospace, information technology, education and natural resources sectors. While Symantec doesn’t name names directly, it argues all of the organizations targeted would be of interest to a nation-state attacker.
