A flight from Dubai to the US was quarantined for a time at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport yesterday after a number of passengers and crew were taken ill with similar symptoms. All of which was documented for the watching world by everyone’s favourite intrepid reporter, Mr Vanilla Ice.

“So I just landed from Dubai and now there is like tons of ambulances and fire trucks and police all over the place”, he announced on Facebook yesterday, posting a video live from the scene. “This is crazy”, he added on Twitter. “Apparently there is over 100 people sick on the bottom floor”.

“So happy I’m up top”, he noted, before confirming that “it’s a double-decker plane 380”. Look at that, he’s even dropping aviation insights into the reportage!

Although around a hundred people were showing similar symptoms during the flight – including coughing, headaches, sore throat and a fever – only around ten people were subsequently taken to a local hospital for tests.

Officials say they think the cause of the symptoms was “probably influenza”. Some passengers who spoke to journalists reckoned that at least some of the affected people were already displaying the symptoms at the airport back in Dubai.

By this point rapper-come-telly-host Ice had left the scene, so we’re relying on CNN for those last bits and pieces of information, which Donald Trump always assures me is ‘fake news’. Nothing fake about Vanilla Ice Reports though, so the first bit definitely happened.
