Several people overcome by fumes aboard plane at Baltimore-Washington Airport
A spokeswoman at Baltimore-Washington International Airport says there was an outbreak of illness aboard a Southwest Airlines flight that landed at the airport.
BWI spokeswoman Cheryl Stewart says one person became ill on the plane, and there was a domino effect, with four to seven others getting sick after that. The first person who became ill was taken to a hospital. The others were evaluated at the scene. It's unclear what caused the illness. Hazardous materials crews are on the scene, and airport officials are interviewing all the passengers.
The plane, Southwest Flight 1283 from Houston, landed at 10:30 pm Eastern time with 125 passengers on board and was met on the ground by fire crews.
