Kenyan survives in nose wheel flight


22-year-old man from Kenya in Wheel Bay of Cargo Plane survives
flight from Africa to Amsterdam: “It is quite remarkable that the man is still alive”

The police are investigating how a 22-year-old man from Kenya got onto the flight, which took off in Johannesburg and stopped in Nairobi.

The Dutch police said that they had found a 22-year-old Kenyan man in the front wheel section of a cargo plane that landed in Amsterdam on Sunday morning after flying from Johannesburg via Nairobi.

First Lt. Mike Hofman said in an email on Monday that after the man was found, officials discovered that he was still breathing. A medical helicopter arrived to provide care, and the man, who has not been named, is currently in the hospital and able to communicate, Lieutenant Hofman said.

It is rare that stowaways survive flights because of the low oxygen levels in wheel storage compartments and the extreme cold as the aircraft climbs to cruising altitude. In the past five years, Dutch authorities have discovered seven stowaways in the Netherlands. Two survived, according to Lieutenant Hofman.

Robert van Kapel, a spokesman for the Dutch military police, said on Monday that the police were conducting an investigation into the man’s circumstances, and whether his trip constituted an illegal crossing of borders and whether it was a case of human smuggling.
