An Oregon mother plans to file a lawsuit against United Airlines for removing her autistic daughter from a flight, according to NBC News. Dr. Donna Beegle, an anti-poverty advocate, was flying home from Walt Disney World with her family last week when the incident occurred. Her 15-year-old daughter, whom has autism, became agitated because she was hungry. After her daughter ate, she calmed down and began to watch a movie. However, Beegle claims, the flight staff then announced it would be making an emergency landing due to a passenger having behavioral issues. Soon after the landing, police boarded the plane to remove Beegle’s family. Beegle says she has filed a complaint against the company and plans to pursue a lawsuit, in hopes of providing training to the airline’s employees.
