Dog dies on United Airlines flight after being placed in overhead bin

A dog reportedly died on Monday night after a United Airlines flight attendant forced the 10-month old puppy into an overhead compartment during a flight from Houston to NY.

Passengers heard barking during the flight, but didn't learn that the dog had died until the flight was over. "I cried with them three minutes later as she sobbed over his lifeless body". "My heart is broken", reads the image caption.

According to witnesses, the flight attendant, who hasn't been identified, required the pet owner to store her pet carrier, with the dog inside, in the overhead bin for the duration of the roughly four hour flight. "They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed", June Lara wrote on Facebook.

"This was a tragic accident that should never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin", Maggie Schmerin, a spokeswoman for United Airlines, said in a statement.

"She said that she did not know there was a dog in the bag, and if so she never would have instructed it to be put in the bin above", she said.

The dog stayed in the canister for the three-hour flight and was not given any water, as indicated by Lara. There was no movement as his family called his name.
