Stowaway body parts 'fall from sky' in Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia--Human body parts fell from the sky in the Saudi city of Jeddah Sunday, with police saying they could be the remains of someone trapped in an aircraft's undercarriage bay.

“Police received a telephone call at 2:30 a.m. from a witness reporting the fall of human remains at an intersection in Mushrefa neighbourhood” in the Red Sea city, spokesman Nawaf bin Naser al-Bouq said in a statement.

Initial indications were that the remains “fell from a plane's landing gear,” said Bouq, adding that investigations were ongoing.

In a desperate attempt to cross borders, some at poorly monitored airports climb inside the bays housing aircraft landing gear.

Most of them freeze to death once the aircraft reach cruising altitude, but some survive.
