Cross-Country Flight Makes Emergency Landing Because of Dog Shit

A cross-country US Airways flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City on Wednesday because a large dog repeatedly shit in the aisles, reportedly causing some passengers to get sick.

Passengers aboard U.S. Airways Flight 598, from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, said the flight was diverted to Missouri after flight attendants ran out of paper towels to clean up the dog's mess.

From NBC News:

Passengers said that the large dog went to the bathroom in the plane's aisle as many three times, making people nearby physically ill.

"The second time after the dog pooped they ran out of paper towels, they didn't have anything else. The pilot comes on the radio, 'Hey, we have a situation in the back, we're going to have to emergency land,'" passenger Steve McCall told Inside Edition.

One passenger, Chris Law, documented the ordeal on Twitter.

The flight then made an emergency landing—in part because the smell was so bad that some passenger were getting sick—in Kansas City, where a cleaning crew waiting to clean up the mess.

Finally, the plane made it to Philadelphia, where residents are used to shitting incidents.

Of course, the poor social media person manning the US Airways account expressed their condolences.

The dog's owner was also apologetic.

"She said, 'Hey, so sorry, I want to get all your addresses so I can give you a Starbucks gift card!'" one passenger told Inside Edition.
