The body of a male stowaway Sunday fell off a Kenya Airways plane moments before it landed at London’s Heathrow Airport.

The KQ Flight 100 was travelling from Nairobi to London.

According to a statement released by KQ on Monday, London’s Metropolitan Police informed the airline that a body had fallen off the plane’s landing gear moments before landing.

“On June 30th at approximately 1541hours (UK time), a body of a yet to be identified male stowaway landed in a garden in the Borough of Lambeth, South London, suggesting that the stowaway was hidden in the undercarriage of the aircraft. The owner called the police who tracked the flight radar to KQ Flight 100,” said the statement.

Unidentified

Following the discovery of the body, which had no identification, the aircraft was inspected and a bag with food and clothes was discovered at the rear left landing gear.
