Spirit Airlines flight 779 from New York to Fort Lauderdale was diverted to Myrtle Beach on Thursday evening when a mysterious odor spread throughout the cabin
The odor was reportedly similar to dirty socks. Passengers complained of burning throats, chest pains, vomiting — and one passenger even passed out.
As many as 10 passengers were hospitalized.
After an extensive search, the Myrtle Beach Fire Department declared the plane "all clear." The source of the odor remains unidentified.
