Tuberculosis Scare

A medical alert tonight, federal health officials say a man with a rare form of tuberculosis may have infected airline passengers while flying earlier this month.

The man flew from Atlanta to Paris on May 12th aboard Air France, he returned on May 24th from Prague to Montreal and then drove to the US.

He voluntarily went to the hospital where he found out he had a dangerous form of TB. Since then he's been placed on quarantine by the federal government.
