Pup Dies On Flight While Stowed In Overhead Luggage

In a statement, United spokesperson Maggie Schmerin said the airline is "thoroughly investigating" what happened so that it never happens again.

On a Monday night flight from Houston to NY, a 10-month-old French bulldog puppy named "Papacito" died after a member of the flight crew unwisely stated that he should be put into the overhead compartment.

One passenger posted a narrative and photos on Facebook.

"'It's a dog, it's a dog.' He can't breathe up there, ' the pet owner said, to which the flight attendant replied 'It doesn't matter, it still goes up there", Sophia Ceballos, 11, told CBS. "She hit his chest so he could breathe, but he couldn't breathe", Ceballos said.

Finally, when the plane landed and the dog's owner opened the bin and pulled out the dog carrier, Lara recounted, there was no sound. "She said, 'Oh, I'm sorry".

The 20-year-old scored both goals in United's 2-1 Premier League victory against Liverpool. No player has featured more times for United in Mourinho's time as manager than Rashford.

According to CBS News, the incident began when the flight attendant noticed the dog's carrier was protruding into the aisle before takeoff.

Following reports of the dog's death being published, the family came forward and revealed the dog was only a 10-month-old puppy called Kokito.

He further wrote, "This poor family paid $125 for their pet to be murdered in front of them". United said the dog should have never been in there.

Today, I boarded my last United Airlines flight.

Once the dog, Kokito, was found dead, Gremminger said the flight attendant became "frazzled" and insisted she didn't know there was a dog in the carrier.

The eyewitness went on Twitter, saying that "my heart is broken".
