Authorities discovered a stowaway Saturday in the landing gear of a flight from Guatemala at the Miami International Airport. US Customs and Border Protection officers at the airport apprehended a 26-year-old man who “attempted to evade detection in the landing gear compartment on an aircraft,” a CBP statement said. The flight was America Airline #1182 from Guatemala City, according to Communications Director for the Miami-Dade Aviation Department. American Airlines said in a statement the flight was met by law enforcement “due to a security issue,” after landing at 10:06 a.m. The airline said it was working with authorities on the investigation. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue confirmed to CNN they transported the man to a local hospital for medical assessment.
