Delta flight lands at RDU after passengers get sick

RALEIGH, N.C.

According to radio traffic, a person began vomiting on the plane, followed by five cases of "sympathetic vomiting."

Flight 841 touched down just after 6 a.m. Because the incident was over so quickly, emergency workers were returned to their regular duties.

Sympathetic vomiting occurs when the sight, sound, or smell of a person throwing up causes others to become nauseated.
