(Scroll down for video) Dog poo caused a plane with hundreds of passengers to make an emergency landing, a spokesperson for U.S. Airways said.

The U.S. Airways flight has been forced to make an emergency landing after a guide dog relieved himself in the aisle on Friday.

Andrew Christie, the spokesperson for the airline, said that the flight from Los Angeles, California, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, made ​​an unscheduled stop in Kansas City, Missouri. A cleaning crew came to the rescue, but the travel time for the passengers doubled to more than 14 hours.

The flight continued after the mess was cleaned up by U.S. Airways personnel. The passenger and the guide dog were booked on another flight.

Christie said the incident was a “rare and unfortunate situation.” According to passengers the dog defecated in the aisle at least three times, and passengers began feeling physically ill.
