‘Vomiting’ Passengers Hospitalized After Landing At Logan Airport
A plane carrying students from Ecuador reportedly became ill on the last leg of their journey, and were taken to the hospital.
According to WMUR News 9, Boston Emergency Medical Services said 13 people on a flight to Logan International Airport were transported to Massachusetts General Hospital after landing Sunday morning. The flight took off in Miami earlier in the morning on American Airlines. A spokesperson for the airline said people transported were part of the same school group whose journey originated in Ecuador.
Boston EMS reported the condition of those affected wasn't serious in nature. However, one passenger of the flight told WCVB that people were vomiting on the plane. Many involved are attributing the outbreak to food poisoning. According to News 9, chaperones reported to American Airlines that everyone in the group "ate the same thing" Saturday night before they left from Ecuador. Massachusetts General Hospital said the patients did not have information on their current conditions.
