"the pilot dropped oxygen masks"

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A plane was diverted to an Ohio airport after two flight attendants reported dizziness and four passengers fainted.

American Airlines spokesman Ed Martelle (mar-TEL') says the pilot dropped oxygen masks when the dizziness was reported Friday morning.

Dayton International Airport Director Terrence Slaybaugh (SLAY'-bah) says the pilot alerted the airport that some passengers were complaining about air quality.

Martelle says all 140 people on Flight 547 from Reagan National in Washington, D.C., to Chicago's O'Hare Airport walked off the Boeing 737. He says two were taken to a hospital. Their conditions are not known.

Martelle says the airline is investigating to determine the cause. Another plane will transport passengers.
