Dutch authorities said the man, believed to be a stowaway, was discovered on Monday afternoon inside a wheel of a KLM flight at Schiphol airport.

A spokesperson for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee told Daily Star that “the man had holed up in the wheel arch of the plane. The low temperatures have presumably been fatal to him during the flight.”

It is likely that the man died from hypothermia due to the extreme temperatures that the plane was flying at during the six hours 45 minutes journey from Lagos to the Netherlands.
