It is apparently said that travel by air is probably the safest and fastest mode of transportation the world has. Years ago, people traveled thousands of miles by sea or land wasting much of their precious time and risking their lives as well. Now, the world is progressing and it’s not wrong to say that everyone can afford and travel by air to reach any corner of the world. Though, is travel by air that safe?[irp]
It was reported that there has been an incident when human remains fell from the sky in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The incident was reported merely on the same day that a Boeing aircraft 767-300 was forced to make an emergency landing because of the landing gear malfunction. The human body fell from the sky on the very morning that this airplane made the emergency landing in the city of Madina.
The airline said that the emergency landing was a minor accident, but luckily nothing stays in the shadows forever. It was told that at least 29 passengers aboard were injured. The exact estimate is however still untold. The police have however have tried to bury down the fact that maybe the fallen man from the sky is connected to the emergency landing of the flight.
There have been certain cases reported in around from the world, mainly from Heathrow where a stowaway was found in a plane that arrived from Istanbul, Turkey. For someone to hide or stay in the stowaway hasn’t been difficult or uncommon. It has happened many times before but due to the freezing conditions and oxygen deprivation, chances of surviving are minimum and highly uncommon. As the plane reaches altitude, the chances are rare.
If someone can justify and assure that the body fell from the plane’s landing gear is the eye witness who made a call as he saw the body fall from the sky. Apart from that, there is no such proof that can tie both the emergency landing and the human remains to one another. The police have also avidly denied that both cases are linked to one another. What can be judged and estimated is that in 2012 there was a stowaway that fell to earth in Mortlake situated near Heathrow.
The stowaway was from Mozambique and apparently, the case similarities are enough to think that the fallen man was in fact situated inside the landing gear of the plane. It can only be hoped that the responsible airlines take charge and perform proper checking of the planes that are ready to take off. They cases do not only affect the people in the landing gear but put the lives at risk of the hundreds who are on board the aircraft. [irp]
No one can further comment on the story and it can be presumed that the airline responsible would do absolutely anything to make this news disappear and vanish into thin air!
