Teen Survives Flight To Hawaii In Wheelwell
From http://www.bbc.com/ -
"Kid's lucky to be alive,'' a FBI spokesman said. Over the weekend on a flight from California to Hawaii there was an unexpected passenger. “When the flight landed in Maui, the teenager hopped down from the wheel well and started wandering around the airport grounds. His only possession when he landed was a comb for his hair.”
A spokesman for Hawaiian Airlines said airline staff noticed the boy after the plane landed on Sunday morning.
He was questioned by the FBI and given a medical screening and was said to be in a stable condition.
The boy is reported to have run away from home and jumped over a fence at San Jose airport to get to the plane.
"Our primary concern now is for the well-being of the boy, who is exceptionally lucky to have survived,'' a spokeswoman for Hawaiian Airlines said. He survived a lack of oxygen and freezing temperatures as the plane climbed to 39,000ft. The boy had been unconscious for most of the journey.
Since records began in 1947, about 100 wheel well stowaways are thought to have attempted to board flights, of whom around three-quarters died.
