RALEIGH, North Carolina - Officials with the Raleigh-Durham International Airport say that a jet was evacuated Sunday after a person "passed gas", making passengers feel ill.

The freaky and presumably strong-smelling incident was reported to have happened at the North Carolina airport on Sunday, with passengers complaining of nausea and headaches, according to WBTV.

The passengers apparently complained of nausea and headaches.

Once passengers were removed from the flight, an airport spokesman said an investigation quickly ensued on what caused the stench.

However, as compared to voice assistants such as Google Assistant and Apple Siri, Alexa's performance is far from being flawless . If there is one major thing that is missing from the control commands, it's the inability to launch streaming apps like Netflix .

What is true is that American flight 1927 from Charlotte to RDU arrived at the gate 2:21 p.m. Sunday, according to airline spokeswoman Lakesha Brown. The plane landed at the airport due to a "medical call".

RDU officials did not identify where the plane was from or its destination or what type of aircraft was involved. The incident reportedly made several other passengers sick.

It was determined that a passenger "passed gas", the spokesperson said. Unusual situations included a flight attendant breaking a wine bottle over passenger's head and one pilot even urged passengers to pray after the plane had to turn around.
