United Airlines is in hot water once again.
This time it’s a video that was taken two years ago but has just become public as part of a lawsuit that the 71-year-old passenger filed against the airline.
Ronald Tigner, 71, is suing United for $1 million for damages he suffered after a United employee threw him to the ground after an argument over a boarding pass.
USA Today describes the incident that took place.
After falling to the ground, Tigner hit his head on the ground and was knocked unconscious, according to the attorney. Tigner can be seen lying motionless on the ground near a United ticket counter. United employees can be seen in the video, though none come to the aid of the man. About a minute into the footage, a woman described by Tigner’s attorney as a good Samaritan comes to the man’s side and requests someone call 911.

United is reportedly trying to settle the matter out of court. Once you see this video of the incident, you’ll understand why.
