Dog Dies After United Airlines Flight Attendant Insists It Be Placed
in Overhead Bin

        Maggie Gremminger, a passenger on the flight from Houston to
        LaGuardia, wrote on Facebook and Twitter that the owner wanted
        to leave her dog in its carrier under her seat, but the
        attendant insisted she put it overhead. The dog had been
        barking during the flight but had died by the end of the
        flight. When the owner discovered that her dog was
        unresponsive, she reportedly broke down "crying in the
        airplane aisle on the floor." Another passenger named June
        Lara wrote on Facebook, "I held her baby as the mother
        attempted to resuscitate their 10 month old puppy."

The airlines are run by idiots and are hiring idiots. Inexcusable.
