Stowaway found dead in KLM plane's wheel well in Amsterdam

Bishkek (AKIpress) - A body found in the wheel well of a KLM plane that landed at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport is thought to be that of a teenage boy who went missing in Norway.

The body was found by Dutch border police and Norwegian authorities suspect it may be a 17-year-old from Larvik in the south of the country, the AFP said.

The 6ft-tall teenager went missing on Wednesday morning and was the subject of a search by emergency services. Norwegian police said they could not be absolutely sure, "but the description and objects found with the dead person indicate with a high degree of certainty that it is the 17-year-old".

Officers have been in touch with missing teenager's parents. According to preliminary probe results, the boy died of shortness of breath.

Sandfjord police chief investigator Merete Torp Nilsen said she believed identifying papers had been found on the victim's body.

A photo published on the website of Noordhollands Dagblad newspaper showed the Embraer 190 on the tarmac, with white sheets shielding its midsection from view and a coroner's car nearby.

The plane's call letters were PH-EZC - which are those of the jet linked to KLM flight 1212 that departed from Sandefjord-Torp airport near Oslo, Norway early on Thursday.

KLM spokesman Joost Ruempol confirmed the incident occurred, but declined further comment.

The same incident occurred April this year when a 16-year-old boy made flight from California to Hawaii in the wheel well of a jetliner. However, the boy has survived.
