It's a new week and a new threat to humanity has surfaced. This time it's the zombie apocalypse because a man reportedly bit another man on a flight and then died shortly thereafter.

"A man has died on board an Aer Lingus flight from Lisbon to Dublin after reportedly being restrained when he became agitated and bit a man," The Gaurdian reports. "Officers were investigating after the flight was diverted to Cork when the captain declared a 'medical emergency'. According to an RTE report, the man became unwell and then fell unconscious after being restrained on the Sunday night flight."

The man was pronounced dead when the plane landed and authorities reportedly held the passengers for questioning.

Does this sound like the begining of the zombie apocalypse because it certainly seems like it.
