A man from Angola was seeking a better life for himself, no matter what it would take. So, in order to try to get to the UK, he sneaked on the base of the wheel of an airplane that was flying to London. Unfortunately for the man, the freezing temperatures thousands of feet in the air were too much for him, and he eventually plunged to his death.
Police don’t know who the man was. They have released a sketch of him in hopes that someone might be able to identify him. They weren’t able to find much of anything else on him other than a sim card and cell phone, which they were not able to trace. He was carrying Angolan currency in his pockets when they found his body.
The man climbed into the compartment above the wheel of the plane but was not prepared for the freezing temperatures. He only had on a thin sweater, jeans and sneakers. He also had some tissue in his ears to deal with the changes in pressure. He fell onto a street in West London and his body was so dismembered that police had to create his sketch on a computer. A small group of people from Angola went to the spot where the man’s body was found and led each other in prayer.
“I felt, what was he running away from? What made him think he could he could? And how will his family ever know? He’s a lost soul now; his father and mother are probably waiting for him to make contact,” said Catherine Lambert, who lives near the place where the man’s body was found.
