Centers of Disease Control officials are looking for 15 passengers who were on Delta Air Lines flight 5121 in which a bat flew inside the airplane’s cabin.
The CDC has contacted 35 of the 50 passengers on the August 5, 2011 Delta Air Lines flight 5121 that was operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines, which was flying from Madison, Wisconsin to Atlanta, Georgia when the bat emerged and escaped. The rabies status of the bat is unknown because it escaped. The CDC wants to talk to the plane’s passengers to make sure they didn’t have close contact with the flying mammal that is prone to carrying rabies.
The CDC says none of the passengers interviews so far were at risk and none of those people interviewed so far required treatment.
