Stowaway teen forces review of airport security
SAN JOSE, Calif. — A 16-year-old boy scrambled over an airport fence, crossed a tarmac and climbed into a jetliner's wheel well, then flew for five freezing hours to Hawaii — a misadventure that forced authorities to take a hard look at the security system that protects the nation's airline fleet.
The boy, who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., hopped out of the wheel well of a Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday. Authorities found the high school student wandering the airport grounds with no identification. He was questioned by the FBI and taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was found to be unharmed.
 
 
No doubt that the kid is lucky to survive but how could he jump a fence and climb up the landing gear while passengers are being bore scoped in the terminal?

He was indeed very lucky that he survived, no thanks to the
TSA'errs who were again not doing their jobs by being more
vigilant where needed and yes, overdoing it in the terminal. <_<
