No one was hurt?
Tell that to the man formerly stowed away on the plane:
A man's leg and part of his spine came crashing onto the roof of a woman's home in Nassau County near Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday morning, and a short while later the man himself was found dead in the wheel well of a South African Airways airliner that had just landed.
"I thought it was a really sick joke," said Hearne, a special education teacher. But when she realized that human remains were in her yard, she called the police. The impact made a hole the size of a watermelon in her garage roof, she said, but no one was hurt. (emphasis mine)
How is this a story about homes belted by body parts, and not about how some poor man was crushed trying to hide in an airplane? Strange.
