United Airlines has reached a settlement with Dr. David Dao, a passenger who was beaten and dragged from a United flight earlier this month after he refused an order to give up his paid seat. As part of the deal, Dr. Dao will not disclose the terms of the settlement or the amount paid out. Viral video of the incident shows a bloodied Dr. Dao being dragged semi-conscious down the aisle of a United jet by an airline security officer. Dr. Dao reportedly suffered a concussion, a broken nose and lost teeth in the incident.
