A Thursday night Spirit Airlines flight from New York to Fort Lauderdale had to be diverted to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina because of a smell reminiscent of dirty socks.

There were 220 passengers on board the flight. The crew opened the emergency exits when they landed so the plane could be aired out. 7 to 10 passengers were taken to the hospital with unknown conditions.  The rest of the passengers boarded another flight and arrived in Florida on Friday morning
