Airliner lands at Newark Airport with 85 sick passengers
Just breaking on Fox News.


*UPDATE*

WABC-TV New York - 6 minutes ago

CDC boards airplane to check on passengers

Continental flight landed at Newark from Hong Kong

(Newark- WABC, March 26, 2007) - A Continental flight is at Newark Airport with reports of passengers ill on board.

Continental flight 98 is parked at Terminal C at Newark with 272 passengers aboard the flight.

The flight arrived just after 2pm from Hong Kong.

Eyewitness News has confirmed that representatives from the New Jersey State Health Dept are aboard the plane now evaluating the situation.

Continental airlines released the following statement:

Flight 98 departed Hong Kong at 11 a.m. today with 272 passengers on board. During the flight, the cabin crew noticed that several passengers appeared ill. Notification was made to health authorities in the U.S. The aircraft landed at Newark Liberty on time at approximately 2 p.m. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent a representative to meet the passengers before their disembarkation into Customs & Border Protection. At this time we do not have a medical assessment from CDC. It is believed that the ill passengers are part of a group of more than 80 tourists who sailed together on a river cruise in Asia. The final destination of the group, after transiting Newark, is Montreal, Canada. We will pass along additional pertinent information as it becomes available.

Don't know anything more about it. It was just a short breaking video from the local TV channel there before they went to a commercial.

Hong Kong plane reported sitting on Newark tarmac
Posted by The Star-Ledger March 26, 2007 3:58PM
Categories: News
A passenger aboard Continental Flight 98 from Hong Kong has contacted The Star-Ledger to report that passengers have landed at Newark Liberty International Airport after a 14-hour flight but are not being permitted to leave the plane.

The caller, who declined to give his name, said the plane, a full flight, landed at around 2:10 p.m. today. Shortly thereafter an announcement was made on the public address system, saying that because some passengers were sick, no one could leave until "a doctor or someone from the CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control)" arrived.


A number of passengers have flu-like symptoms, according to an official familiar with the incident.

Nathan Rudy, a state Health Department spokesman, said the department had been notified about the situation. He would not release further details, saying the Health Department was still investigating the report.

Hmmm...

Test case? A set up for the mandatory vaccination program of tainted or old flu shots? After all, wouldn't want to throw away perfectly good poison...

Nuff said.

Lucas, that is the 14 year old who has got my curiousity. I never believed in psychics. This kid made his first prediction on the forum about a month ago.

One of his predictions was very sharp. He got the exact day, and exact state in the USA for an earthquake a few weeks in advance.

I think he is from Britain.

I'd keep an eye on his predictions. He's no slouch for 14.
