22 year old Kenyan found Stowaway in South African Cargo Plane Wheel
Written by Ateca Tukana on January 25, 2022
It is very unusual for stowaways on long flights to survive, due to the cold and low oxygen at high altitudes.
In the past five years, seven stowaways have been discovered on planes in the Netherlands, only two of them survived.
Flights from Johannesburg to Amsterdam take about 11 hours and would have been longer with one stop in Nairobi.
The Stowaway was found on the nose section of a cargo plane.
He plans to apply for asylum in the Netherlands.
He is conscious and able to communicate, and currently receiving medical treatment in the hospital.
The Cargolux freight flight he was found on flew from Johannesburg, South Africa, to the Dutch capital, via Nairobi in Kenya.
Dutch police are investigating whether he got on in at South Africa or Kenya.
The Baffling fact is that this guy managed to survive an 11hour flight especially with the altitude levels and the cold weather.
