Man flies from New York to Boston in cargo hold

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A luggage handler flew from New York to Boston after falling asleep in the cargo hold of a JetBlue airliner but was unharmed and not charged with any crime, media reports and officials said.

Massachusetts state police said the 21-year-old man was discovered in the cargo hold when the plane landed at Boston’s Logan Airport on Saturday but provided no further details.

JetBlue would only say it was investigating the incident.

Channel 7 News in Boston reported the man fell asleep with the luggage in New York and that baggage handlers in Boston were shocked to discover him when they opened the cargo door.
