Man taken off American Airlines flight for wearing gas mask
A man has been removed from a flight in the US for refusing to take off a gas mask after passengers began to panic, Texas media report. The man was wearing the mask on an American Airlines flight bound for Houston from Dallas on Thursday. The man was rebooked on the next flight and boarded without the mask. "I looked up and saw a guy coming onto the plane wearing a full gas mask, which was kind of odd," passenger Joseph Say told Houston ABC station KTRK. "Immediately, people start talking in the back of the plane," he said. Mr Say said he initially thought the gas mask was related to the new coronavirus, which has killed 259 people in China.
