10 sick passengers on worldwide flight to JFK taken to hospital

Jet quarantined at JFK after passengers fall ill on flight from Dubai

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has been briefed on the incident, spokesman Eric Phillips wrote on Twitter.

Fire officials say 10 of the people who arrived sick to New York City on a flight from Dubai have been taken to a hospital.

Emirates initially announced that 10 passengers on board flight EK203 were ill.

She said: "Emirates can confirm that about 10 passengers on board flight EK203 from Dubai to NY were taken ill".

The airline said about 10 passengers were sick and were getting medical attention 'as a precaution'.

A rep for Vanilla Ice confirms to ET that he was on the plane, and was released with all the other passengers that did not exhibit any symptoms, and has already continued his travels from NY to home. "The safety & care of our customers is our first priority", the carrier said in a statement.

"Emirates can confirm that about 10 passengers on EK203 from Dubai to NY were taken ill".

Three passengers and seven crew members were taken to the hospital, while nine passengers underwent additional screening at the scene and were soon released, Emirates said.

Videos and photos showed numerous ambulances near the plane on the JFK tarmac.

Rapper Vanilla Ice was among the 521 passengers stranded on an Emirates flight at JFK Airport early Wednesday amid an apparent on-board flu outbreak, the one-hit wonder tweeted.

The New York Police Department Counterterrorism Bureau said they were monitoring a "medical situation" at the airport. He said the sick people were on what he called the "bottom floor".

There were reports of 100 out of 500 passengers who fell ill on the plane.

Passenger Larry Coben tweeted an image of a CDC form on the plane they were required to fill out. Then they boarded buses and again waited outside customs for some time before being admitted to the country.

The plane was taken to a "hard standing area", where paramedics and officials from the CDC were responding to the scene, the source said.
