Body of Stowaway Falls From Plane’s Landing Gear

A stowaway on a Kenya Airways flight may have fallen from an airplane above London, falling to his death in a garden below, according to a report Monday.

The unnamed passenger was likely hiding out in a landing gear compartment of the plane as it descended to Heathrow Airport on Sunday, police told CNN.

The remains were found when police were called to “a residential address” in the city’s Clapham neighborhood for a report of a body “discovered in a garden,” London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Officers also found a bag with water and food stashed in the plane’s landing gear compartment after it touched down at Heathrow Airport, according to the station. Police plan to conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death and are working to find the stowaway’s identity.
