UPDATE Passengers fall ill on Cleveland Frontier flight airport drinking fountain may be to blame

The sick individuals were taken off the plane to be evaluated in Tampa.

At least six passengers were stricken and "the primary symptom was vomiting", Janet Scherberger, spokeswoman for Tampa International Airport, told NPR in an email.

Frontier Airlines and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport were not immediately available for comment.

The city of Cleveland says while it's not known yet what caused the illnesses, Frontier Airlines reported that each of the sick passengers might have used a public drinking fountain before the flight. The remaining travelers were allowed to deplane shortly after 4:30 p.m. with no additional reports of people getting sick.

In the meantime, officials are sending water samples from airport fountains to a lab for evaluation. No other passengers got sick at the airport. "Passenger safety is Frontier's number one priority", the airline said.
