Stowaway found dead in garden after falling from plane near Heathrow

A stowaway fell from a plane’s landing gear as it approached Heathrow Airport and was later found dead in a garden, police have said.

The unidentified man’s body was found in a garden in Clapham, south London on Sunday, officers added.

He fell from a Kenya Airways plane at the end of a nine-hour flight from Nairobi.

Police connected the body to their flight, the airline said.

A bag, water and food were found in the compartment containing the plane’s landing gear.

Although a rare occurrence, it has happened before.

In September 2012, a 30-year old from Mozambique, Jose Matada, died after falling from the undercarriage of a flight approaching Heathrow from Angola.
