    Stowaway Plunges To Death From BA Plane

    A stowaway has died after falling from a British Airways jet on to an office block in southwest London.

    He and another man are believed to have clung on to the passenger plane as it flew more than 8,000 miles from Johannesburg in South Africa to Heathrow.

    The second man is in a stable condition in a west London hospital after miraculously surviving the ordeal.

    It's pretty sad that people have to go this route to reach "possible" destinations. :(

    The deceased almost made it ... RIP!

    One wonders how did they survive at such an altitude from Johannesburg with oxygen deprivation and low temperatures???

    One wonders how the news outlet knows that the man was still alive when he fell from the aircraft. What's the point of carrying out a post-mortem when MSN can accurately tell you the time and mode of death?
