No Charges for Teen Plane Stowaway

A teen who survived a 5.5 hour flight to Hawaii in the wheel of a plane probably won't face criminal charges, the FBI says. The 16-year-old hopped a fence at the San Jose airport and crawled into the wheel compartment of a plane after running away from home. He endured freezing temperatures and extremely thin air during the ride, only regaining consciousness an hour after the plane landed. He's now in the care of child protective services.
