3. The Stowaway

Fourteen-year-old Keith Sapsford attempted to hitch a ride on a jet airliner leaving Sydney, Australia headed for Tokyo, Japan. Sapsford managed to hide inside the wheel-well hours before takeoff. After takeoff, the door mechanism opened to retract the wheel causing Sapsford to fall 200 feet to his death. An amateur photographer happened to be photographing planes taking off and captured the incident.
