Spirit officials say the incident is not related to COVID-19, and that no passenger needed medical attention. The plane will now undergo maintenance checks and a deep cleaning.

CBS News’ Kris Van Cleave says the attendants reported feeling light headed during the flight and area being checked out at a hospital.
