Teen flies from Shanghai to Dubai hiding in cargo

Dubai: A teenager from China had a comfortable 9 hour journey flying from Shanghai to Dubai after he secretly made his way into the cargo of an Emirates flight. The 16-year-old Chinese youngster, smuggled himself onto the cargo bay of the Airplane in Shanghai and made the nine-hour trip to Dubai with nothing but dreams of making a fortune and leading a comfortable life.

It was unclear how the boy had made it onto the flight, but he was more than lucky to have snuck into the pressurized and temperature-controlled cargo bay area instead of the wheels stow away area where there are no such controls; he could have frozen to death or died due to lack of oxygen there. The boy, who spoke through an interpreter, revealed that his journey in the bags section of the plane was comfortable.
