Stowaway found dead in plane's landing gear in Paris

The plane had left Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on Tuesday evening and landed at Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport shortly after 06.00 (CET).

The spokesperson said they could not confirm, however, reports that the deceased was a child.

The body of child aged around 10 has been found in the undercarriage of plane that had arrived in Paris from Abidjan, sources close to the investigation have told French media.

He said " there was no trust " in his proposal to merge Nissan with French automaker Renault, of which he was also chairman. He faces fresh arrest warrant over remuneration underreporting that is suspected to have continued through March 2018.


A French police official told the Associated Press that stowaway attempts involving children are rare and almost impossible to survive.

The report said that the instances of stowaways hiding in the interior of commercial jetliners are extremely rare as sub-zero temperatures inside the aircraft are likely to cause exposure and death within minutes of take-off.

The corpse, not warmly dressed, was found in the plane's undercarriage cavity after landing, in what Air France described as "a human tragedy". He declined to give the child's age, citing the early stages of the investigation. No other information was immediately available.

A stowaway's body was found in the landing gear of an Air France flight on Tuesday, according to the airline.

That was not the first incident in which the body of a suspected stowaway had fallen from a flight over London, with a similar incident occurring in 2015, when a man identified as Carlos Vale fell from a British Airways plane wheel well from Johannesburg.

His possessions were later found in the landing gear of the aircraft.
