ATLANTA, Ga. (WSAU) - A spokesperson for the Centers for Disease Control reports there are still 15 passengers from Delta flight 5121 they need to contact.

Health officials want to make sure they are protected against rabies. The CDC says it has spoken with 35 of the 50 people who were on the August 5 flight from Madison to Atlanta and none have required any treatment. The plane was in the air when a bat started flying from one end of the cabin to another. It isn't known if the bat had rabies because it got away without being captured.

The CDC says it just wants to make sure the passengers didn't have close contact with the bat, putting them at risk of rabies.
