CHICAGO, March 26 (UPI) -- Nine members of a tour group have been hospitalized after falling ill while waiting for a flight at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, officials said.

The group was preparing to board a flight to Denmark when some of them became sick, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.

Initially, ambulances took seven people to local hospitals. Two more people were transported later, said Juan Hernandez, a spokesman for Fire Media Affairs.

The group had been on a bus tour before they arrived at the airport.

Hernandez said those people who did not get sick were kept at a hotel "as a precaution," the Chicago Tribune reported.

All those hospitalized were reported in good condition.

The incident is under investigation, the fire department said.
