VIDEO: Passenger Pulled from US Airways flight for saying “I have Ebola,” F/A says “man is an idiot.”

A US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Punta Cana,  was held upon landing yesterday after a sneezing passenger joked about having been to Africa.

“I have Ebola, you are all screwed,” the 54-year-old man said, according to the Dominican news site Diario Libre. Fox News reported he also screamed, “I’ve been to Africa!”

The director of operations of the airport in Punta Cana confirmed a medical team boarded the plane in hazmat suits and took the passenger to a separate medical health area, where he was examined and found not to have the lethal disease. The Ministry of Public Health also confirmed the scare was a false alarm.

The flight attendants though, in our opinion, did an awesome job of keeping the calm and telling it like it is. “It’s going to look worse than what it is,” one of the crewmembers said before Hazmat teams removed the passenger. “By the depth of my being, I’ve been doing this for 36 years, I think the man that said this is an idiot, I’m going to say that straight out” she continued.

The dumbass and/or hypochondriac, who was also found not to have been to Africa, is being returned to the United States, where he will be checked again.

According to the person who posted the above video, the other passengers were held for 2 hours before they were allowed to disembark.
