OMG! Did A Passenger’s Fart Just Cause An Airplane Evacuation?

fartAmerican Airlines is denying media reports that a plane evacuation at Raleigh Durham International Airport was caused by passenger’s flatulence.

The bizarre 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 American Airlines plane landed at 4pm local time, and a subsequent investigation by airport officials determined that a passenger had “passed gas,” reported the Charlotte Observer.

It’s not immediately clear from where the passenger jet had traveled.

“But it is not due to ‘passed gas’ as mentioned,” a spokesperson for the airline said.

In a separate statement, an American Airlines representative simply stated: “The story is not true.”
