Ventilation Breakdown Of Plane Leads To Hospitalisation Of 5 Passengers 

New Delhi: On Thursday, five passengers who were onboard, Air Transat vacation flight to Florida were hospitalized, after they fell ill just before takeoff from Quebec City, which an official blamed on a ventilation breakdown during the plane's de-icing.

Airline spokeswoman Debbie Cabana said that the jetliner immediately returned to the airport gate and 185 passengers and six crew disembarked from the Airbus A321 bound for Fort Lauderdale,  as quoted by AFP.

She said that two of the passengers complained of "vomiting, dizziness and sore eyes," and five of them were sent to hospital for tests and treatment.

The rest were scheduled to board another, Air Transat flight in the late afternoon.
