    About four times a year, somewhere in the world, someone sneaks into the wheel well of a parked jet and attempts to survive an incredibly dangerous ride, frequently to the United States.

    Usually, the stowaways die, as was the case on Thursday, when a man climbed into the wheel well of a Miami-bound cargo jet while it was on a ramp in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic.

    Shortly after takeoff from Las Americas International Airport, at 1:45 p.m., air traffic controllers saw a man fall out of the Boeing 767. The body was found by airport workers and the runway was shut down for 45 minutes.

    The twinjet, operated by Amerijet International, proceeded to Miami International Airport, where it landed safely. Miami-Dade police and federal aviation authorities inspected the jet's wheel area.,6659336.story
