Ebola-skrik op vlug SW744 Vr, 2014-08-01 10:29

‘n Siek passasier op Air Namibia se vlug SW744 vanoggend uit Johannesburg na Windhoek het die redery genoodsaak om onmiddellik ‘n noodplan in werking te stel ingeval die passasier dalk die dodelike Ebola-virus het.
 Mnr. Wimpy van Vuuren, senior bestuurder verkope en bemarking by Air Namibia, het pas bevestig dat geen van die passasiers toegelaat is om die vliegtuig te verlaat nie omdat die ministerie van gesondheid en maatskaplike dienste moet ingryp.
 Dr. Jack Vries, hoof van die hoof van die reaksiekomitee vir gesondheidsnoodsituasies by die ministerie, het aan Republikein gesê ‘n volle mediese span met twee ambulanse en beskermde mediese drag is na die Hosea Kutako internasionale lughawe gestuur ná opdrag gegee is niemand mag die vliegtuig verlaat nie.
“Ons het reeds ‘n afsonderingsaal by die Sentrale hospitaal in gereedheid gebring en is reg vir enige gebeurlikheid,” het Vries verseker.
 Volgens Van Vuuren is die passasier van Zanzibar afkomstig. “Hierdie is ‘n voorkomende maatreël. Gegewe die Ebola-uitbreking in Wes-Afrika en vrese oor die verspreiding van die siekte, kan ons nie versigtig genoeg w...

The pilot who crashed into a San Diego parking lot after clipping a Target store was pulled from the plane's wreckage by a civilian rescuer as flames had gotten as close as the seat right behind her, her rescuer told ABC News.

The plane went down in a fireball in a shopping center parking lot around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday after a bounced landing at the nearby Montgomery Field municipal airport caused the plane to crash in the parking lot, according to authorities.

An 80-year-old passenger in the plane later died of her injuries in a hospital.

The plane's 52-year-old pilot, who was not identified, was unable to clear the Target building and smashed into the parking lot. Jeremy Dunkleberger rushed to her rescue.

“I said, ‘We’ve got to get you out of here,’” Dunkleberger told ABC News. “She said, ‘Well my leg is broken. It’s broken real bad.’”

“I said, ‘I know that, but we've got to get you out of here.’ I said, ‘The seat behind you is on fire,’” Dunkleberger said.

The two women were both taken to a hospital, where the passenger later died from her injuries.

San Diego ABC station KGTV reports the plane was regis...

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — An Australian airline apologized on Wednesday for a warning a flight attendant gave passengers who might have been flying high that there were drug-sniffer dogs awaiting them at Sydney airport.

Many of the 210 passengers aboard the Jetstar flight from Gold Coast city on Sunday night had attended the Splendour in the Grass weekend music festival at Byron Bay and were returning home.

"We have been told there are sniffer dogs and quarantine officers waiting in the domestic terminal," Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper on Wednesday quoted the attendant as telling passengers via the Airbus A320's public address system.

"If you need to dispose of anything you shouldn't have, we suggest you flush it now," he added.

The newspaper said the warning prompted passengers to rush for the toilets.

Jetstar spokesman Stephen Moynihan confirmed the newspaper report was accurate. He said the public response to the announcement had been "mixed."

The airline said it routinely makes quarantine announcements on such flights that cross state borders.

"The crew member's words were poorly chosen and a...
