Dead Stowaway Found On KLM Flight From Lagos

Questions have been raised regarding how and when the man was able to board the plane, which started from Lagos, Nigeria, after his body was found on Monday within the wheel well of a KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Boeing 777 (registered PH-BQM).

To ascertain the facts surrounding the occurrence, an investigation has been opened.

Stowaways in aircraft wheel wells are subjected to high temperatures, which, according to a representative of the Royal Dutch Marechaussee, might go as low as minus fifty degrees during lengthy flights. This makes it nearly impossible to survive, and hypothermia is probably a factor in this situation.

He said, “Sometimes they survive, but most of the time it goes wrong given the sharp drop in temperature. On longer flights, temperatures can go down to minus fifty degrees, impossible to survive.”


Despite the risks, some stowaways still attempt to use this method to travel without proper documentation or authorisation, often seeking a better life or escaping difficult situations in their home countries.

The discovery of this deceased stowaway highlights the need for increased security measures and thorough inspections of aircraft before departure to prevent such incidents from occurring. Airlines and aviation authorities regularly review and update their security protocols to ensure the safety and security of passengers and crew onboard.
