Flight delayed because of tuberculosis scare

PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities are trying to determine whether a man who flew into Phoenix has tuberculosis, but a public health official says any risk to passengers on his flight is extremely low even if it turns out he does have the infectious respiratory illness.

About 70 passengers on the US Airways Express flight on Saturday from Austin, Texas, were kept on board until after responders boarded and removed the man, who was asked to put on a medical mask.

Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine is medical director of Maricopa County's disease control division. She says the man is being tested at a hospital.

Sunenshine says any risk of spreading tuberculosis on the flight -- if the man even has TB -- would have been extremely low because the man was not coughing or sneezing.
