    With or without comma?

    Hi there,

    I have attached an article which I feel something is wrong about its grammar.

    In the first paragraph, it wrote "A passenger forcibly removed from an overbooked...", isn't it supposed to be either "A passenger, forcibly removed..." or "A passenger was forcibly removed...".

    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    There is nothing wrong with the original. "who was" between "A passenger" and "forcibly removed" is implied.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "A passenger, who was forcibly removed from an overbooked United Airlines flight, has been identified as..." - Correct

    "A passenger was forcibly removed f
    rom an overbooked United Airlines flight has been identified as..." - Wrong

    The original in the article is also correct as ems explained.
