It's Raining Men

or at least parts of a man...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pieces of a man's body fell from the wheel well of a South African Airways passenger plane bound for John F. Kennedy International Airport Tuesday and landed in the yard of a suburban home, police said.

A U.S. customs inspector discovered the rest of the man's body at 7:30 a.m. (1130 GMT) after Flight 203 landed in New York from Johannesburg, South Africa, said a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees area airports.

A South African Airways spokeswoman said it appeared to have been a stowaway attempt. She said the plane had stopped in Dakar, Senegal, on its way to New York.

The pilot reported feeling vibrations at takeoff but conducted a check and found nothing amiss, said Nassau County, New York, police detective Kevin Smith.

During the flight, Smith said the pilot felt more "vibrating sensations and heard pounding, but nothing appeared wrong with the plane."

The body parts, which included the right leg, part of the spine and a hip, struck a garage roof of the home in South Floral Park, New York, before landing in the backyard, police said.

Yeah, that's sad. Vibrations aren't much compared to what the poor stowaway felt getting pinched in half by a wheel assembly. I doubt he would have survived ten or so hours in freezing temp's with the reduced oxygen at about 30,000 feet though. Perhaps better to have been killed fairly early on than to have slowly suffocated en route.

What a horrible story. To have been desperate enough to try a stunt like that he must have been fleeing something terrible. Sad ending indeed.

His dumbass deserves what happened! Just goes to show the ramifications of trying to steal.

That would be pretty nasty though, going outside to check what that noise was and find a bloody stump in your front yard.
