One falls out of wheel well on takeoff, second boy nearly
On Thursday, two
Chinese teenagers, age 13 and 14, who had recently escaped from a
home for runaway children located in the Chinese province of Hunan,
decided to stow away in the wheel well of a Sichuan Airlines A320
departing Kunming on its way to Chongqing.
Unfortunately, the unidentified 13 year old fell out of the well
during takeoff and died. The other one, identified as Liang
Kailong, managed to survive the hour-long flight at temperatures as
low as -22 degrees Farenheit and was found hanging on to a hose
after the aircraft landed at its destination.
No one knows how the boy was able to survive the exposure and
hypoxia. He was immediately hospitalized and his condition is
described as fair. The only immediate danger to his health appears
to be the possibility that he will lose his hearing.
According to Asia-Pacific AP, an officer at the Chongqing
airport police station confirmed that the incident had in fact
taken place, but would not give out any further details. All other
parties involved, including the hospital and the management of the
departure and arrival airports, would comment.
No one could describe how the boys managed to get access to the
aircraft on the ramp. The surviving boy has not told authorities
why they stowed away inside the Airbus jet.
