A stowaway fell from a Kenya Airways plane flying over London on Sunday and crashed into a residential garden just feet away from a man sunbathing in the area, reports say.
The unidentified man fell from the undercarriage of Kenya Airways flight KQ 100 as it flew over South London around 3:40 p.m. local time after a long flight from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, according to London’s Metropolitan Police and Kenya Airports Authority.
“A bag, water and some food were discovered in the landing gear compartment once it landed at the airport,” Metro Police said in a statement, noting that the plane was headed to London’s Heathrow Airport.
Police were called to a home on Offerton Road in Clapham that afternoon. Authorities are working to determine the man’s identity and the death is not being treated as suspicious, they said.
