London - The frozen body of an aircraft stowaway narrowly missed a sunbather after plunging into a suburban garden in London.
Police believe the man fell from inside the landing gear compartment of a Kenya Airways plane after a nine-hour flight from Nairobi.
The unknown man fell to earth as the flight approached Europe’s busiest airport just after 3.30pm on Sunday.
The stowaway fell into the back garden of a £2.3-million (about R41.2-million) home in Clapham, south London, as the jet approached Heathrow.
Shocked neighbours said he missed a man who was relaxing in the blazing sunshine by just a yard and cracked the paving.
