12 passengers become ill on flight

16 June 2015, 10:22

Los Angeles — Twelve passengers who became ill on a flight from Fiji to Los Angeles have been examined and released.

Los Angeles International Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles says Fiji Airways Flight 810 arrived from Nadi International Airport at about 1:45 p.m. Monday. The crew reported a dozen passengers were sick with stomach problems.

Multiple agencies, including the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, responded and examined the patients. Castles says responders determined all of them were fine to continue on with their journeys. One opted to go to a hospital.

The 12 passengers were not traveling together but all stayed at the same hotel in Nadi.

The situation was resolved by 2:15 p.m. when the last of 272 people aboard the flight were cleared to leave the plane.
