A plane passenger sparked mass panic after reportedly shouting ‘I have Ebola!’ on a flight.

The man, who is yet to be identified, was travelling from Philadelphia, US, to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, when he made the statement. You can hear the flight attendant in the video saying how stupid she thinks the man is, and she has a point.


Initial local media reports suggested that the man screamed out ‘I have Ebola!’, but officials working at the airport told Fox that he said ‘I’ve just been to Africa!’.

As you can see below, it all resulted in some very dramatic scenes.
