CDC Investigating Reports Of 11 Sick Passengers

MIAMI (AP) _ Health authorities responded Tuesday to reports that 11 people were ill on a flight from Mexico to Miami International Airport.

The Aeromexico flight from Merida, Mexico, landed at the airport and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was meeting with authorities in Miami to assess the situation, said Von Roebuck, a CDC spokesman. He had no further details.

Aeromexico spokeswoman Gemma Liebanas said the airline is investigating.

``I think that the people who got sick, it must have been from something they ate at the airport, because no food is served on the flight from Merida to Miami at that hour of the day,'' Liebanas said.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson could not confirm the illnesses. He said the plane landed at about 1:10 p.m.
