Stowaway Boy Survived -50C

PlaneA runaway Russian boy survived an 800 mile flight at temperatures of -50C hidden in the wheel well of a Boeing 737.

Andrei Lyssov, 11, had run away from his home in Siberia after an argument with his parents.

He managed to bypass airport security to hide in plane as it took off from the city of Perm.

Airport workers found the boy when the plane landed in Moscow and he dropped on to the tarmac. He was taken to hospital where doctors said he was suffering from severe frostbite.

A spokesman for Vnukovo airport in Moscow said: "Parts of his clothing were frozen to his body. The fact the boy was from Siberia and was conditioned to extremely cold temperatures may have helped him to survive."
