Maggots cause US Airways plane alert


A US Airways flight had to return to the gate after maggots apparently fell from a container of meat in an overhead locker.

Passenger Donna Adamo said she noticed a couple of flies on the flight when she got to her seat.

As the plane was taxiing she said she heard a passenger behind her causing a commotion and refusing to take her seat.

Ms Adamo filmed passengers leaving the plane and what appears to be a small maggot wriggling across a seat.
