Stowaway teen hospitalized on O`ahu

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A teenager who stowed away in the wheel well of an airplane for a five-hour flight from California to Hawai`i is resting at a Honolulu hospital.

The State Department of Human Services said in a statement Tuesday that child welfare services officials are continuing to work to ensure his safe return home. The department didn't indicate when the 15-year-old would be going back to California.

American Medical Response air and ground ambulances flew him from Maui to O`ahu and drove him to a Honolulu hospital Sunday evening. American Medical Response Maui operations manager Curt Morimoto says the child was in very stable condition.

Officials say the boy was knocked out most of the 5 1/2-hour flight and didn't regain consciousness until an hour after the Hawaiian Airlines plane landed.
