Boy survives two-hour flight to Moscow hanging onto plane wing

Boy survives two-hour flight to Moscow hanging onto plane wing

MOSCOW, September 24 (RIA Novosti) - A 15-year-old boy from the Urals suffered acute frostbite after riding the wing of a Boeing-737 plane on a two-hour flight from Perm to Moscow, Russian radio station Mayak reported on Monday.

After clinging on for the entire 1300-kilometer (808-mile) flight to Vnukova Airport, the boy, named Andrei, collapsed onto the tarmac. His arms and legs were so severely frozen that rescuers were at first unable to remove his coat and shoes, the radio station said.

The airport did not confirm the report. "We have no information on this," the Vnukovo press service told RIA Novosti.

However, Moscow's air and water transport control department said the radio's claim was true. A department spokesman said the incident occurred on Friday, and that the boy's parents were immediately informed, and flew to the capital the same day.

Doctors said it was nothing short of a miracle that Andrei survived the flight, with temperatures hitting minus 50 degrees Celsius (-58 Fahrenheit), the radio station said. The Boeing-737 has a cruising speed of 900 kmh (560 mph).

The boy reportedly made the journey after a commonplace domestic dispute. Angry with his father, who reportedly has a drinking problem, and with his mother for siding with her husband in family rows, Andrei ran away to the neighboring village, where his grandmother lives. On reaching the village, he decided to go on, and hitched a 220-km (137-mile) ride to the regional center, Perm, where he was dropped off at the airport.

It remains unclear how Andrei was able to climb on a plane wing un-noticed, and the Perm Airport security service is being asked some serious questions, the radio station said.

Andrei is now being treated in a Moscow hospital, Radio Mayak said.

Chismillionare's tip to buffer the impact of fraud/identity theft

This came up during discussion today at lunch:

To help prevent the risk of fraudulent charges, simply open an additional checking account at your bank. You simply have one for direct deposit and checks and the other for ATM and debit transactions. Simply transfer in the amount of money you see fit to your debit account while leaving the main account safe.

That way if your debit account is compromised and charges result, your existing checking account balance is not impacted in the time between filing a fraud complaint and and a credit being issued to your account.

Especially useful while travelling or on vacation.

Bacteria from Outerspace far more deadly!

Salmonella bacteria grown on the space shuttle displayed unusual genetic activity, becoming much more virulent.A new study shows that its effects on microorganisms may be just as dramatic: Salmonella grown onboard the space shuttle was many times deadlier than its terrestrial counterparts. The study suggests that NASA and other space agencies may need to worry that long manned missions will increase the virulence of microorganisms that astronauts inevitably carry with them. It has also given microbiologists insights into Salmonella that may lead to new therapies for infections on Earth.

Female Ninjas Rob Store

Police said two women dressed as ninjas were responsible for the hold-up of a Richland Township gas station Saturday morning using a samurai sword.Police said the two women -- one with a dagger, and the other carrying the sword -- entered a Sunoco station in the 5600 block of Route 8 at about 3 a.m.According to police, the women tied up the clerk and robbed the store of cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets.

"They were all covered in black and carrying swords, so it did appear that they were dressed like ninjas," said Chief Robert Amman of the Northern Regional Police Department. "Swords, daggers could be used to seriously harm victims, so this is a very serious crime."Police said the clerk was not harmed and is OK.No arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified.Rick Lekki said it was hard for him to believe that a robbery occurred across the street from his business, R and J's bar."It's shocking. Things like that just don't happen out here. I just can't believe it happened," Lekki said.Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
