Puppy Dies After Flight Attendant Insists On Stowing Him In Overhead Luggage

Irgo had flown in a kennel on a different United Airlines flight that arrived at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday

"Pets should never be placed in the overhead bin", the statement added.

"We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them", the United States airline said in a statement.

"I sat behind the family of three and thought myself lucky - who doesn't when they get to sit near a puppy?" passenger June Lara wrote on Facebook. This poor family paid $125 for their pet to be murdered in front of them.

Passengers reported that they heard barking during the flight and didn't know that the dog had died until the plane landed at LaGuardia Airport.

"She realized the dog was dead right there and she just started crying", she said.

"There was no sound as we landed and opened his kennel". 'I held her baby as the mother attempted to resuscitate their 10 month old puppy.

The woman initially placed the carrier under the seat in front of her, but the flight attendant told her she needed to put the bag, including the dog, in the overhead compartment for the entirety of the flight. She said the woman was "very hesitant and reluctant", and explained her dog was in the carrier.

The flight attendant, Gremminger said, seemed shaken by the incident as well. I cried with them three minutes later as she sobbed over his lifeless body. They lost their dog because of an @united flight attendant. "We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again", the statement said. "My heart is broken".

Last year, 18 animals died while being transported on United - there were six cases on all other USA carriers combined, according to the Department of Transportation.

According to the airline's website, pets are allowed on most flights within the U.S. In-cabin pets must travel in approved kennels that can fit completely under the seat, where the kennel must remain at all times. Last year, the carrier was sued by the owners of a giant rabbit that died on one of its flights. In 2017, United also apologized for the death of a dog that had been put in the cargo hold of a plane held for hours on a tarmac last summer.
