Airplane Stowaway

Hosted by

A 16-year-old boy from Santa Clara snuck into the wheel well of a jet traveling from San Jose to Hawaii yesterday. He was discovered wandering around the tarmac in Maui. Experts are scratching their heads at how the boy survived high altitudes and freezing temperatures during the five-and-a-half-hour flight. There are also questions about how he managed to sneak onto the plane at the San Jose airport.
