LEE COUNTY, Fla.  — A Fox 4 viewer sent us a video of the man dressed in a Hazmat suit.

The man is flying from Milwaukee to Fort Myers.

Fox 4 reached out to him and he told us he has Crohn's Disease which means his immune system is compromised.

So he's wearing the suit as a precaution in an effort to protect himself.

The man told Fox 4 no doctor told him he had to take these precautions.

He says he's here on spring break and while he won't wear the suit on the beach he is taking the recommended precautions like washing his hands often.
