    Passengers on a US Airways plane ready for departure from Reagan National Airport here Monday morning apparently alerted a flight attendant to screams and thumps coming from under the floor, which turned out to be a baggage handler who was trapped in the forward cargo hold.
    Evidently another baggage handler had closed the cargo compartment door on the first worker, who had crawled into the space, just 37 inches high, while loading baggage.

    Kinda makes you wonder what would have happened to him had he not been discovered.

    Aren't most baggage holds pressurized and/or temperature controlled?
