An unidentified man has been found dead in the landing gear of a plane that took off from Lagos, Nigeria and arrived at Amsterdam, Schipol Airport, Netherlands

A body of an unidentified man was found in the landing gear compartment of a plane that had arrived in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport from Lagos, Nigeria on Monday, April 19. 

Dutch authorities have launched an investigation into the man’s identity and cause of death after he was discovered inside a wheel arch.

“We are investigating the discovery of a body in the landing gear of an airplane that arrived from Lagos (Nigeria),” , Royal Military Police tweeted on Tuesday, adding that the Schiphol airport police unit and forensic investigators were working on establishing the person’s identity and cause of death.

According to the Dutch media, the body was discovered by the airport technical staff in the KLM airlines plane. The victim was reportedly a stowaway and was killed by the low temperatures during the flight.

A spokesperson for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad: “The man had holed up in the wheel arch of the plane. The low temperatures have presumably been fatal to him during the flight.”

A similar event happened recently when a 16-year-old boy from Kenya hid in the landing gear of a plane flying to Maastricht Aachen airport from London, in February this year.

Though he survived but was hospitalised with severe hypothermia. It is thought he later applied for asylum status.
