Haupt says five more of the 309 passengers aboard the Boeing 747 then became sick after the flight continued on to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

One of those passengers was treated at the airport, and at least two others were taken to a Chicago hospital.

Haupt says the plane returned to Frankfurt early Sunday morning.
