What happened to Dr. David Dao stunned a nation. Security dragged him off a United Airlines flight in 2017 to make room for airline employees.

Today he spoke publicly for the first time about what happened to him.

He told ABC News he “just cried” when he saw video of himself screaming and being dragged off the plane. Dao suffered a concussion in the incident, but said he bears no anger or grudges to the security personnel who he said were just doing his job.

He also spoke of being touched by his daughter who took the podium before scores of media to speak out about the incident.

The medical doctor is now retired and dedicating his life to charity work helping veterans.
