Stowaway teen forces review of airport security

By 67AM KPUA News

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Officials at San Jose International Airport say they are investigating why no security personnel noticed a 15-year-old boy crossing the tarmac and climbing into a wheel well as a stowaway.

Airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes says airport employees monitor security cameras throughout the 1,050-acre airport.

However, she said Monday that no one saw images of an unidentified person approaching Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45 until security reviewed the footage after the plane had landed in Hawaii and the boy had been found.

The FBI says the high school student who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., hopped out of the left rear wheel well of the Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday.
