It was an incredible story of survival after investigators say a 16-year-old boy hitched a 2,300-mile ride across the Pacific in a plane's wheel well over the weekend.
FBI investigators said they have video showing the boy scaling a fence at the San Jose International in California before jumping in the unprotected, unpressurized wheel well of Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45.
The plane left California shortly after 7 a.m. Sunday and arrived on Maui at 10:30 a.m.
But it wasn't until an hour after the flight landed that an employee noticed something out of the ordinary -- a teenager stumbling out from the bottom of a plane.
"he was weak. He hung from the wheel well and then fell to the ground. He regained his strength and stood up and then started walking to the front of the aircraft," said Marvin Moniz, Maui District Airport manager.
San Jose International Airport officials are investigating the incident as a security breech.
"Despite this, no system is 100 percent, and it is possible to scale an airport perimeter fence line, especially under cover of darkness, and remain undetected. It appears that's what this teenager did," said Rosemary Barnes, with the San Jose International Airport.
The Transportation Safety Administration will review security at the San Jose Airport.
If the boy faces any criminal charges, that will be filed in California.
