A ten-month-old French Bulldog puppy has died after a United Airlines flight attendant reportedly told the dog's owner to put it in the overhead compartment.

Passenger Maggie Gremminger, who said she was seating behind the woman with the dog, gave her account of what happened.

United's pet policy says animals must be in a carrier that can fit underneath the seat in front of the passenger.

"We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them", the USA airline said in a statement. She said the woman was "very hesitant and reluctant", saying her dog was inside. As a matter of fact me and my wife got the privelage to babysit their dog Bernie (named after the Brewer mascot) the last week and it was such a blast.

The American airline issued an apology after a fellow passenger on a flight yesterday from Houston, Texas to New York City's Laguardia airport tweeted her heartbreak at what she had witnessed on board.

United Airlines confirmed the incident to BuzzFeed News, calling it "a tragic accident that should never have occurred." . She initially placed the dog under the seat in front of her.

"They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed", Lara wrote. I cried with them three minutes later as she sobbed over his lifeless body. "We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again", the United spokesperson said in a statement.

By the end of the flight, the dog was dead. Earlier in the year, Simon the three-foot-long rabbit also died after a United Airlines flight.

There is no word yet on the official cause of death, though United has offered to pay for a necropsy, as well as refunding the family's tickets.

And last February, USA Today reported 53 animals had died between January 2012 and February 2017 on United flights, according to the Transportation Department's Air Travel Consumer Report.
