It was a nerve-wracking two-hour ordeal for passengers on a U.S. Airways flight to the Dominican Republic when a so-called joke triggered a full-scale Ebola scare.
A passenger set off a panic when he stood up and shouted, “I have Ebola…You’re all screwed.”
Everyone on the plane then ordered to stay in their seats as hazmat crews stormed the cabin.
The flight from Philadelphia was checked and cleared but kept passengers stuck on the plane for two hours.
It’s unclear what happened to the man who made the claim.
Below is a YouTube video someone took on board the flight:
