An unidentified American passenger on a US Airways flight traveling from Philadelphia to Punta Cana on in the Dominican Republic reportedly shouted out things like, “I’ve been to Africa!” and “I have Ebola, you’re all screwed!” right before the plane landed.
Considering that the virus has caused about 4,000 deaths in Africa, and one in U.S., the authorities were not amused by this, causing a bit of a scene on the plane.
Upon the plane’s arrival, a passenger took this video of what happened next – the flight crew asks the passengers to stay calm and sit down, when the blue blue hazmat suits arrive and takes the passenger to the airport’s medical center for tests.
Reports say he was coughing during the flight and seemed “unbalanced.”
Seems like the man had not been to Africa lately. Authorities say they don’t know what he did that, but it was only a scare!
