Authorities found the body of a stowaway in the wheel well of a South African Airways jet on Tuesday after a leg fell into the backyard of a Long Island home.
The leg fell from the jet when it lowered its landing gear as it was approaching New York’s JFK Airport, said police.
It landed on the roof of a Long Island garage and bounced into the backyard of a home. A woman living there discovered the leg, which had a sneaker on the foot.
Officials found more remains in the jet’s wheel well after it landed.
The New York-bound flight had made one stop in Senegal after leaving Johannesburg.
Crikey! I knew Economy class was bad but this can’t be much better?
