MIAMI (Associated Press) — Authorities have taken into custody a 26-year-old man who apparently stowed away in the landing gear compartment of an American Airlines fight that arrived at Miami International Airport.
The man was in the wheel well area when the flight arrived from Guatemala City, Guatemala, at 10:06 a.m.
Law enforcement authorities met the plane due to a security issue.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers took the man into custody. The agency says he was taken to a hospital for evaluation. The news release didn’t say whether he will face any charges.
An investigation is ongoing.
