Jet Makes Emergency Landing in South Ala.

By  | 

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say nine people were treated for eye irritation after a jet made an emergency landing in south Alabama when passengers complained of itchy eyes and difficulty breathing.

The Boeing 737 landed around 6 p.m. at Mobile Regional Airport.

Mobile Fire-Rescue spokesman Steve Huffman says that the nine people treated for eye irritation were doing well. He said another person was taken to the hospital to be treated for high blood pressure.

Reports also say that the aircraft is a federal plane -- not a commercial one -- and that its destination was unclear.
Few other details were immediately available.
