Officials are looking into why five people became sick on a flight from Germany to Chicago.

The Lufthansa flight had already made an emergency stop in London after a "very sick passenger" had to get off the plane and go to the hospital.

The flight then continued on to Chicago, but five more people got sick and were treated by three doctors who were on board on the plane.

Those illnesses were not related.

Two people were taken to the hospital and the other refused treatment.

All passengers who were treated are in good condition.
