Man dies on Kenya Airlines flight
He was hiding in the landing gear compartment
The dead body of a man fell down from a plane in the garden of a cottage in Clapham, south London. As reported by "BBC", the body slipped from the landing gear of a Kenya Airways aircraft arriving from Nairobi and heading for the nearby London-Heathrow airport where it landed around 3:00 pm on Sunday. The man came up the plane clandestinely in order to emigrate to United Kingdom. He was hiding inside the Boeing 787 in the landing gear opening, and during its extraction from the fuselage his lifeless body slid down. It was impossible to resist a nine-hour journey at such a low temperature: witnesses described the body as a block of ice. A bag, water and food were found in the compartment of the aircraft. "It is unfortunate that a person has lost his life by stowing aboard one of our aircraft", declared in a statement by the airline. British police, which does not consider the death suspicious, is now working on identification.
