It's been posted elsewhere but I figured there are no threads about LA or LAX specifically so-
CBS account of the story
4 people on the plane below, two of which CBS uses as sources. I saw CNN and a handful of other agencies get at them for permission to use their
pictures as well as contacting them.
Read on twitter from the same onboard passengers that medics came aboard at approximately 3:55 PM and then proceeded to take the ill woman off.
At 3:59 pm same person quoted the pilot announcing "There was no health scare." and then tweeted a minute later they had begun releasing passengers
off plane and that they were holding the afflicted woman for a "psych" evaluation.
Another couple relevant tweets:
@Gingerhazing "one of the passengers is ill and has had contact with someone from Africa"
@PaulHolland_TWN "May or may not have had contact with someone from Africa
@Alexhaggiagdean "United 703 at some distant hangar. Passenger "may or may not" have come in contact with people from West Africa.
Psych evaluation? 4 minute ebola test?
This whole thing smells god awful, like everything the CDC and public health officials have been saying. I think there is too much traveling industry
in Los Angeles for the media to be honest about our affairs as to the Ebola epidemic, they are constantly hiding and changing the amount of people
that have been tested and quarantined in California. They offhand it in news articles or in the middle of the local affiliates talking about Dallas.
It's impossible to get a straight answer. I have read 8 people total, I have read 20 people total and today I heard on CBS 2 currently quarantined
WITH A PICTURE OF GOOD SAMARITAN HOSPITAL ATTACHED.
Yesterday I was driving by Good Samaritan hospital in DTLA and they shut down the entire block while I was passing. Had to turn, realized where I was
(stuck on the small two lane road going into the hospital dead in front of me) and had a little panic attack, may have busted an illegal u-turn or
two. Was instantly reminded of watching the ambulance escorting patients driving by unsuspecting civilians on the freeway. Not a word in the news as
to why the entire block was shut down, there are plenty of messed up daily occurrences in the city but they don't just shut down a huge/busy part in
front of the hospital.
