Man's Ebola Prank on an Airplane Goes About As Well As Expected

This guy is going to get sued.

A man was on a flight from Philadelphia, PA to the Dominican Republic Wednesday when he got the bright idea to act like he had Ebola. He started coughing and yelling, really hamming it up. He even said that he was from Africa, according to reports of the incident, and yelled that he had Ebola.

The man caused a panic among the passengers. He also caused the airplane and all of its passengers to be delayed a couple of hours while a hazmat crew boarded and everything got sorted out.

The prankster was screened and tested and it turns out that he probably does have the flu. He appears to have launched his prank because he is “unbalanced.”
