A man aboard a Newark-bound flight has reportedly claimed he has “poisoned everyone on board” and is being restrained by other passengers, according to authorities.

United Flight 116, which came in from Hong Kong, landed at Newark Liberty International Airport this afternoon. FBI agents were there when the plane landed.

An FBI official told PIX11 News they do not believe anybody has been harmed and think the passenger who made the claim is emotionally disturbed rather than a credible threat.
