Food poisoning sickens passengers from Dominican Republic trip
Five passengers aboard a WestJet flight from the Dominican Republic were taken to hospital by ambulance Wednesday night after apparently suffering from food poisoning.

Ambulance crews were called to Pearson International Airport after reports of some passengers on the WestJet flight from Punta Cana feeling ill.

A Toronto ambulance was waiting when the plane landed at 9 p.m.

The adult passengers, including three members of one family, were examined by paramedics at the airport then taken to the Trillium Health Centre Hospital in Etobicoke.

About 80 other passengers on the flight were cleared by a Health Canada nurse at the airport.

Russ Power, the duty manager for Peel's Emergency Medical Services, said the call was "pretty much routine" and looked like a "clear-cut case of food poisoning."
