American Airline passenger's fart forces everyone off the flight
An unidentified passenger’s fart made everyone on the plane nauseous and gave them headaches.
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA— Passengers on an American Airlines flight were all evacuated on Sunday afternoon when someone farted so hard that it made people sick.
An unknown passenger reportedly passed gas and it stunk so bad that it warranted an actual deplaning. The fart apparently made passengers on the plane feel nauseated and overcome with headaches, CBS-affiliate WNCN reported.
The plane quickly landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina and passengers were let off the aircraft. Luckily, no casualties were reported from the incident.
American Airlines later released a statement that said they did have an aircraft from Charlotte travelling Raleigh. The flight landed at 2:19 p.m. local time, and went out of service for an actual mechanical issue — and odor in the cabin. But it was not due to “passed gas”.
Farts, flatus, or flatulence can actually make you sick. It is comprised of minor sulfur gas components — including hydrogen sulfide, and depending on the amount, it can cause headaches, nausea, skin and eye irritation.
