Stowaway Survives Flight to Hawaii

MAUI, HI - A 16-year-old stowaway in the wheel well of a plane bound for Hawaii from California will not face criminal charges.

Authorities say the boy jumped a fence at California's San Jose airport and climbed into the wheel well of a hawaiian airlines plane.

He then took the five hour flight to Maui.

Investigators say the teen didn't have any identification on him and was apparently unconscious for most of the flight.

Once caught in Hawaii, the disoriented but unharmed teen was checked out at a local hospital before being turned over to child protective services.
