How to survive a five-hour plane flight in a wheel well

Vox has the story of “How to survive a five-hour plane flight in a wheel well” about the idiot 16 year old in California who inexplicably stowed away on the outside of a plane bound for Hawaii.

The title of the article made me laugh – is this really “advice” we should be putting out there!?

But the best line comes later in the story:

trauma surgeon Kenneth Stahl said the teenager will probably have permanent brain damage from his experience.

I would argue this kid had permanent brain damage LONG before he jumped the fence at the airport.
