DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - An American Airlines jet had to make an emergency landing yesterday afternoon after fumes filled the cabin.

Two crew members and one passenger were hospitalized, according to reports. 

The flight was headed to Philadelphia from London.

One of the pilots told an air traffic controller that a bottle of non-toxic fluid used to clean the planes spilled in a bathroom.

The plane was carrying nearly 300 people.
