This may make you think twice about airport security...again.

A 16 year old, officials say, jumped a fence hours before the plane left, got up in the wheel well of the plane and made the 5-hour journey from San Jose to Hawaii. According to Yahoo:

Two weeks ago Hawaii child welfare officials said the boy had left their state, and the San Jose Mercury News has reported he was back in California and in the custody of social services.

Officials are saying he is lucky to be alive after being so high up in the air and not in the pressurized cabin -- it is very likely he should have died.
