Body Found in London Garden Fell from Heathrow-bound Plane

LONDON (AP) — Police and airline officials say a stowaway fell from the landing gear of a jet as it approached London's Heathrow Airport after a 9-hour flight from Nairobi.

The Metropolitan Police force says the body of an unidentified man was found in a south London garden on Sunday, and it's believed he fell from a plane.

He has not yet been identified.

Kenya Airways said Monday that police traced the body to its Nairobi-London flight. A bag, water and food were discovered in the plane's landing-gear compartment.

Though not common, stowaways have in the past plunged to the streets of London as planes lowered their landing gear. In September 2012, a 30-year old from Mozambique, Jose Matada, died after falling from the undercarriage of a Heathrow-bound flight from Angola.
