Chinese Teen Survives Emirates Flight from China to Dubai in Cargo Hold

KARIM SAHIB/AFP/Getty Images(SHANGHAI) — A Chinese teenager was reportedly able to sneak into the cargo hold of an Emirates flight from Shanghai and made it all the way to Dubai alive.

The boy, who was allegedly hoping to become a beggar in Dubai, hopped a fence at the Shanghai airport and climbed into the hold while a security guard looked away, according to BBC

Emirates said the teen was handed over to Dubai police after he was found on Flight EK303 on Friday, BBC reports.

“We are co-operating fully with authorities in Dubai and as this is a police matter we are unable to comment further at this time,” Emirates said in a statement according to BBC.
