Human body parts fall from sky in Jeddah
Jeddah, January 6, 2014
In a strange incident, parts of a human body fell from the sky in the city of Jeddah on Sunday, reports in local media said.
Police were quoted as saying they could be the remains of a person trapped in an airplane’s wheel bay.
“Police received a telephone call at 2.30 am from a witness reporting the fall of human remains at an intersection in Mushrefa neighbourhood” in the Red Sea city, spokesman Nawaf Bin Nasser Al Bouq was quoted as saying in an AFP report.
In a desperate attempt to cross borders, people at poorly monitored airports climb inside the bays holding the landing gear of planes. Most of them freeze to death once the aircraft reach cruising altitude, but some survive.
