Immigrant of the Day: United Airlines pilot (and hero) Zak Khogyani (Afghanistan)


It always is good to hear a good immigration story.  I have one for you.

Decades after fleeing Afghanistan as a boy, United Airlines pilot Zak Khogyani helped evacuate more than 1,000 Afghans last summer, in some cases traveling in the main cabin and translating for families in flight, Caitlin O’Kane reports for CBS News. "I knew I had to do something," Khogyani said. " … I couldn’t simply just sit on the couch and watch it happen without doing something to help the situation."
