Passengers on a U.S. Airways flight in the Dominican Republic had two hours of panic after a passenger triggered a full-scale Ebola scare. All passengers were ordered to remain in their seats as Hazmat crews stormed the plane after a man stood up and yelled, “I have Ebola! You’re all screwed!” A passenger on the plane recorded the video and posted it online.

The flight, headed from Philadelphia to the Dominican Republic, was checked out and cleared; it is unknown what happened to the man who made the statement.
