Plane strays pair on bikes in NJ

A brother and sister out for a pleasant bike ride to celebrate his 19th birthday found themselves caught in New Jersey's battle with gypsy moths. Liquid from a low-flying plane spraying insecticide rained down on Joe and Colby Brewin.

Vineland Emergency Medical Services officials told them the insecticide is not toxic to humans though it can trigger asthma attacks in some.

Joe and his 21-year-old sister say they feel fine. They cut their ride short Wednesday afternoon, went home and showered.
