Stowaway found in South Africa plane wheel at Amsterdam airport

A stowaway was discovered in the wheel section under the front of a Cargolux freight plane that arrived at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport from Africa on Sunday, Dutch military police said.

Marechausse spokeswoman Joanna Helmonds said the man's age and nationality had not yet been determined."Our first concern of course was for his health," she said."This is definitely very unusual that someone was able to survive the cold at such a height - very, very unusual."

A spokesperson for freight carrier Cargolux confirmed in an email that the stowaway had been on a flight operated by Cargolux Italia."We are not in a position to make any further comment until the authorities and the airline have completed their investigtion," they said.
