Airport Officials in Maui found a boy wandering around on the ramp at Maui International early this morning.

The boy had apparently hopped a fence at San Jose Int'l Airport and climbed into the wheel well of a Boeing 767.

The flight lasted five and a half hours, reaching altitudes of 39,000 feet and temperatures as low as 80 degrees below zero.

Officials credit the teens survival to the heat from the airplanes hydraulic lines keeping his body alive.

Hopefully this occurrence doesn't give anyone else any stupid ideas.
