Stow-A-Way Teen Goes For a Ride, Inside the Well
Written by jbinner on April 21, 2014
The 16-year-old stowaway survived temperatures that might have reached -80 degrees and the thin air available at 38,000 feet, FBI spokesman Tom Simon said.
“I understand everybody’s skepticism but his story checks out,” Simon told USA TODAY. “He went into the wheel well in California and he came out of the wheel well in Hawaii.”
Security video indicated the teen was able to breach San Jose’s Mineta International Airport security on Sunday and climb undetected into the wheel well of Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45.
