OREGON, USA – A mother from Oregon said she will file a case against United Airlines after her 15-year-old autistic daughter was removed from the plane.
Donna Beegle and daughter Juliette were forced out of the plane, which made an emergency landing, after Beegle and the flight crew argued over what the teen wanted to eat.
Beegle said her daughter can sometimes become a picky eater but that should not be a reason why they will have to be removed by authorities from the plane.
She said filing a lawsuit should trigger training for airline employees about dealing with people who have autism.
United Airlines has not issued a statement regarding the incident as of this posting.
Meanwhile, two people were shot near the University of California-Santa Barbara campus Monday night, almost a year after a misogynist killed six students in a rampage in the same location.
The cause of the attack Monday night has not been established yet but the police initially said the incident might have erupted from a domestic dispute. – BusinessNewsAsia.com
