Passenger hit by severe diarrhoea on plane, flight forced to turn back

This really was a sh*tty situation for all involved...

A worst nightmare became a reality for passengers on a Delta flight recently.

Two hours into a flight from Atlanta, USA, to Barcelona, Spain, the pilot informed the 336 passengers that they were required to head back after someone on board suffered from an explosive case of diarrhoea, creating a mess throughout the plane.

Interestingly, this is not the only incident involving a Delta plane which has hit the news of late.

A week ago, Delta confirmed that 11 passengers and crew members were taken to hospital after they were subjected to a severe case of turbulence on a flight from Milan, Italy, to Atlanta, USA.
