The reports say the man, who was not identified, was coughing during the flight to the Dominican Republic. Right before the plane landed, the passenger made the scary proclamation, causing widespread terror amongst the other passengers.
When the plane landed in Punta Cana, the passengers were checked at a medical facility for a fever, a main symptom of the deadly diaease. They all checked out and we’re eventually sent on their way.
Video taken in the plane shows workers in hazmat suits going through the aircraft. A man, believed to be the one who made the announcement, is seen being escorted off the plane, while saying “I ain’t from Africa!”
