Miracle – boy survives sub-zero temperatures and near-zero oxygen during five-hour flight in wheel well of airplane
It’s a rare event and even rarer if the person attempting it survives. The FAA says that since 1947, there have been around 100 people known to have stowed away in wheel wells of an airplane. Most of them died. But this week a 16-year-old boy survived a five-hour flight from California to Hawaii hidden in a wheel well of a commercial Boeing 767 airplane. Aviation experts are calling it a “miracle”.
