Spilled Tea Causes Plane to Make Emergency Landing

Talk about getting into hot water. A British plane had to make an emergency landing after a passenger spilled a cup of hot tea on herself.

German police say the flight, operated by low cost carrier Ryanair, was en route from Liverpool to Poznan, Poland, when the 56-year-old woman accidentally scalded herself with the tea.

The pilot decided to make an unscheduled landing in Bremen, in northwestern Germany, so she could be treated.

After the passenger was disembarked, the plane continued with its flight. The woman was cared for at the airport and released, police say, and ended up taking a train the rest of the way to Poland.
