“Oh my goodness, I don’t know how I’m going to do this the next four hours. This is just impossible because they are squishing me,” she said in the video, adding, “At least they’ll keep me warm.”

Passengers on board a United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Hong Kong had a lengthy stay on the tarmac after their flight was diverted to Goose Bay, Canada. 

A medical emergency had originally  caused the plane to divert. Once on the ground, the plane experienced mechanical issues.

Passengers were not allowed to leave the airplane because the Goose Bay Airport did not have a customs officer on duty during the overnight hours.

Overnight temperatures dropped to around 20 below zero. Passengers were finally able to get off the plane after 14 hours.

Nearly 300 passengers fall ill on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas Cruise ship

Visitors Coverage

Nearly 300 passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas cruise ship fell ill with a stomach virus after it departed Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, on Sunday.

A total of 277 guests and crew members have been affected with a gastrointestinal illness, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean Cruises told NBC News on Wednesday.

More than 8,000 guests aboard the ship will receive a refund because of the outbreak, said the spokesman.

“We think the right thing to do is to get everyone home early rather than have guests worry about their health,” he added “Returning on Saturday also gives us more time to completely clean and sanitize the ship before her next sailing.”

 Government officials say at least 222 people have been killed and 843 injured after a tsunami hit coastal towns on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.\

 “The tsunami was not triggered by an earthquake,” said one official. “It’s possible that it was triggered by an underwater landslide due to the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau [that’s Child of Krakatoa]. At the same time there was high tide because of the full moon. So there was a combination of natural phenomena, tsunami and high tide.”
