Passengers evacuated from plane after someone 'passed gas'

The story about a a man's powerful flatulence prompting an evacuation is not what it seems says American Airlines

The freaky and presumably strong-smelling incident was reported to have happened at the North Carolina airport on Sunday, with passengers complaining of nausea and headaches, according to WBTV.

An American Airlines flight was evacuated after a sick man broke wind so violently it caused nausea and headaches among his fellow passengers, according to a USA airport official.

Things are getting a bit freaky on flights nowadays, and people cannot get over this.

The police investigation was coordinated by the Federal Police, the Federal Food Agency in Belgium and Guardia Civil. The suspects have been public health violations, money laundering, forgery and animal abuse , among other crimes.

Some complained of headaches and nausea. The flight landed at the airport around 4 pm, and, after all the commuters were taken off the flight, an investigation followed. Authorities later said the incident was a "medical call" and directed all questions to Wake County Emergency Medical Service.

In what may very well be a first, a passenger who "passed gas" forced the plane to reroute and land. WBCN reports that the RDU officials could not identify the flight nor its destination. "But it is not due to "passed gas" as mentioned," he said.

"We did take an aircraft out of service for a mechanical issue, an odor in the cabin.No "passed gas" issue".
