Spokesperson says, 'passed gas' forces passengers off plane at RDU airport

Someone on an American Airlines plane "passed gas" Sunday afternoon, causing passengers to become sick and forcing everyone to be removed from the jet.

All passengers were taken off the plane, and that's when it was determined that the passenger had "passed gas", according to an airport spokesperson.

The weird 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.

The resulting smell was so noxious that fellow passengers became ill and were rushed off the flight, according the RDU employee, who spoke with CBS South Carolina.

Passengers on board an American Airlines flight on July 16 were forced to get off after one of them allegedly passed gas. An American Airlines spokesman later refuted the report of a passenger passing gas, saying the odor came from a mechanical issue on the aircraft.

Officials with RDU did not identify where the plane was flying in from, its destination or what type of plane was involved in the incident.

Flight 1927 from Charlotte to Raleigh landed at 2:21 p.m. on Sunday.
