A person who "passed gas" on an American Airlines plane on Sunday afternoon 
forced all passengers off the jet, officials said.

The flight, which was not identified by RDU officials, landed at the airport 
around 4 p.m. after passengers became ill with nausea and headaches, according 
to a spokesperson with Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

investigated, it was determined that a passenger "passed gas," the official 

Authorities later said that the incident was a "medical call" and directed all 
questions to Wake County EMS.

RDU officials did not identify where the plane was from or its destination or
