Footage filmed by other passengers showed that aviation officers dragged Dr. David Dao by his hands and feet down the aisle of an April. 9 flight bound for Louisville, Kentucky. The inspector general's report said "the investigation also uncovered that the employees made misleading statements and deliberately removed material".
