Napping Stowaway Flies From New York To Boston
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Airline travelers feel a sense of relief when they're lucky enough to get free pretzels. A man named Sidney Nurse got a whole free flight. He's a baggage handler for JetBlue in New York. And he crawled into a baggage compartment to get a nap. Mr. Nurse woke up to discover the plane had taken off. Once he discovered the problem he phoned his employer. The plane landed safely in Boston, although he never did get those free pretzels.
