An Emirates aircraft has been quarantined at New York's Kennedy Airport after passengers started falling ill on the flight.
While ABC News’s Transportation Reporter Sam Sweeney tweeted that 100 passengers had become ill on the flight, Emirates put out a statement saying that the number of passengers who had fallen ill was actually 10.
The Emirates flight landed around 9:10 am, reported Associated Press. Videos from news helicopters showed the jet sitting on the tarmac surrounded by ambulances, vehicles and airport personnel.
According to AP, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were also present on the scene.
