RALEIGH, North Carolina: All passenger on board an American Airlines plane were forced to leave the jet after someone "passed gas". The flight landed at the airport around 4 pm, and, after all the commuters were taken off the flight, an investigation followed.

An airport spokesperson originally told WNCN the odor was caused by a passenger who "passed gas".

The bad odor impacted Flight 1927 from Charlotte to Raleigh Durham International Airport on Sunday shortly after it arrived. RDU officials called EMS to Terminal 2 to examine crew members who complained about the foul smell. No one was transported

The station reported Sunday that the passengers were removed after experiencing nausea and headaches from the noxious fumes.

The International Business Times reported the sick man "broke wind so violently it caused nausea and headaches among his fellow passengers", citing a USA airport official as its source.
