Teen Apparently Survives Flight To Hawaii In Landing Gear


By KMVT News

Kahului, Hawaii (CNN) A 16-year-old apparently hitched a ride from California to Hawaii in a plane's landing-gear wheel well.

This is video of Kahului Airport in Maui.

The boy told investigators he lost consciousness when the plane took off from San Jose.

He says he regained consciousness after it landed here.

Between oxygen depletion and the cold, most people would not survive the five-hour flight.

The FBI says the boy did not pose a threat.
