Boy Survives Flight on Boeing Wing

A boy has survived a two-hour flight clinging to the wing of a Boeing 737. The 15-year-old, named Andrei, clambered into a wing's wheel well after running away from his Siberian home. It was not more than a miracle that he survived the 900 kmph speed journey in -50 degree celsius temperature! He was discovered frozen, when the plane landed in Moscow - and is now being treated in hospital for severe frostbite.

According to news, he ran away from home after an argument with his parents. Then he went to see his grandmother in a neighbouring village. He then hitched a 220km lift to Perm, where he was let out at the airport and somehow got onto the Boeing 737 wing. Link
