A viral video shows a woman being "forcibly removed" from a Southwest Airline flight.

Southwest Airlines is responding to a viral video of a woman being forcibly removed from a Los Angeles-bound flight from Baltimore.

Police appear to drag the woman off the plane over a claim that she was "deathly" allergic to two dogs on board.

She requested an allergy shot, but refused to leave the plane to get the shot.

Southwest Airlines released a statement, "Our policy states that a customer (without a medical certificate) may be denied boarding if they report life-threatning allergic reaction and cannot travel safely with an animal onboard."
