  • Ten passengers taken ill on Dubai-New York flight

Around 19 passengers on the Emirates flight from Dubai to NY were sick after landing.

Ice, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, used Facebook to post a video of the emergency response to an initial report that dozens of people could be sick.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating two flights where about a dozen passengers fell ill arriving at the Philadelphia International Airport on September 6. Nine others refused medical attention, according to Eric Phillips, the press secretary for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. While it's unclear at this point exactly what made almost 20% of the passengers feel so ill, NBC reports that the flight from Dubai made a stop in Mecca, where there is an ongoing flu outbreak.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the estimated number was about 100.

Earlier, Dubai-based Emirates said in a statement that 10 passengers "were taken ill" on the flight from the Middle Eastern country and were transported to a hospital.

The Emirates flight landed at about 9:10 a.m. Wednesday.

Emirates confirmed to People that the Centers for Disease Control staff and Port Authority officials from NY and New Jersey were on the scene when the plane arrived.
