Miami, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 28th Nov, 2021 ) :US border officials in Miami said Sunday they had apprehended a 26-year-old man who had stowed away in the landing gear compartment of an aircraft arriving fromGuatemala.
"The individual was evaluated by Emergency Medical Services and taken to a hospital for medical assessment," said a statement from a US Customs and Border Protection spokesman.
There was no immediate information on the man's identity or condition, though the risk of falling and the extreme cold at high altitude pose grave dangers.
The American Airlines flight fromGuatemala lasted nearly three hours, the Miami Herald reported.
It posted a video showing a thin, bedraggled looking man sitting shakily on the tarmac near the plane's landing gear as airport staff tried to help him.
