47 passengers stuck six hours on a tarmac in Rochester

47 passengers were held for six hours on a Continental Airlines ExpressJet at the Rochester airport after storms diverted their flight from Texas to Minneapolis. Passengers endured crying babies, a broken toilet and a lack of food while they waited for their plane to take off with a replacement crew the next morning. A Continental statement said passengers were not allowed off the plane because airport security screeners had left for the night.
