good tuesday morning. we begin with new details from that amazing stowaway survival story. experts think the teenager may have gone in to a kind of hibernation once the plane took off. >> and plans are made for the boy to be reunited with his family in california. with more on this, here's abc's david kerley. >> this teenage boy, according to the fbi, stowed away in a wide-bodied jet, unpressurized wheel well, flying half way across the pacific, 5 and a half hours from san jose, california to hawaii and surviving. an hour after landing, he emerged from the jet, dazed, caught on videotape and shocking ground crews. >> he was weak. he hung from the wheel well and fell to the ground and regained some strength and stood up and walked to the front of the aircraft. >> reporter: the boy had a fight with his parents says the fbi. he ran away to the san jose airport where he was able to scale a fence, beating the security system and raising concerns about all airports. >> under cover of darkness and
remained undetected as he then proceeded to the aircraft ramp and proceeded in to the wheel well of the aircraft. >> reporter: in a plane as large as the 767 there's some room in the wheel well so someone can climb up the tire in to that space. three out of four people who try this die. they are crushed, fall out or die from the elements. among the 105 who did try there are 25 survivors. possibly 26. why is this so hard to believe? because as a plane gains altitude the air gets thin and temperatures start dropping dramatically. so at 38,000 feet, it's at least 50 degrees below zero and hardly any oxygen. how was he able to do it? as the jet climbs, the person gradually loses consciousness and his temperatures slowly drop the nervous system is preserved. in a sense a hibernation. >> i'm boggled at the fact that somebody could hibernate like that. >> reporter: an fbi agent said the teenager doesn't even remember the flight. hawaiian airlines said the boy
is exceptionally lucky to be alive. the teen is in the custody of child services in hawaii. his parents have been notified and it's expected the young man will be on the inside of a plane relatively soon headed back to california. david kerley, abc news, reagan national airport. >> where do you start with this one? >> oh, my goodness. apparently he didn't care where he went. >> hopped on the first plane that's incredible. the official there at san jose airport said they have cameras and there's surveillance but it can't cover every inch of the airport. still they checked the surveillance video and saw him. it sounds like somebody may have dropped the ball. he was on somebody's surveillance video. >> experts say regardless of how he could survive without oxygen in minus 50-degree temperatures and then when he lands be able-bodied enough to walk around. not have -- they said kidney damage, not have brain damage. it's just mind-boggling. >> it is.
he's one lucky boy. >> sure is. our coverage of the hawaiian airlines stowaway doesn't end here. we get an inside look at the jet's underbelly to see what it takes to ride in the wheel well. ryan owens brings that part of the story later in this half hour. 46 days in to the search for missing flight 370. the painstaking efforts have so far failed to yield a single piece of wreckage. two dozen planes and ships are searching 19,000 square miles of surface of the indian ocean. that's almost the size of west virginia. the u.s. navy's bluefin-21 robotic submarine has covered two thirds of the search zone. so far no trace of the missing jumbo jet. the death toll has climbed above 100 in the south korean ferry disaster. they battled poor weather conditions to continue their search effort. passengers and parents of passengers on board the ship issued a letter of appeal to the government urging the operation be carried out more quickly. this morning, south korean
investigators say the ferry did not make a sharp turn before cap capsizing. suicide bombings and other attacks have killed at least 30 people in iraq and wounded 70 others. the attacks have become a daily occurrence or near daily occurrence as iraq counts down to parliamentary elections at the end of the month. over the past year, the violence in iraq has surged to levels not seen since 2008. american drones in the yemeni military have carried out attacks in the southern part of the country. 55 militants, including three high value targets have been killed in the operation so far. several u.s. officials say the air strikes were timed to counter any plans for terror attacks in yemen. president obama heads to the washington state landslide zone today to meet family members and first responders. he will make a brief stop as he heads out on an eight-day asian tour. the disaster death toll is up to 41 people. four are still missing. vice president biden is in ukraine's capital to show support for the struggling government there. this comes as photos are turning up on twitter an other media

administration to fully accept responsibility for the new ukrainian government it brought to power. over the past two weeks, pro russian forces have seized a dozen government offices and raised the russian flag. the white house said militants in eastern ukraine must comply with the recent agreement signed by the u.s., russia and the eu and ukraine, and it means give up the weapons and the buildings they occupy. before he leaves, vice president biden is expected to announce an aid package to ukraine. energy, economic and government assistance. john and diana. >> karen, thank you. a patient at a hospital near pittsburgh is facing drug charges accused of selling heroin from her hospital bed. police confiscated nearly $4,000 worth of heroin from the woman's room in the intensive care unit at a hospital in greensburg, pennsylvania. they sent in an informant to purchase drugs after the staff became suspicious. >> what they noticed last week was an exorbitant amount of foot
traffic happening to the patient's room. not people coming to stay two hours, but coming to stay for two minutes. >> reporter: some of the visitors didn't even know the woman's last name. in addition to the drugs, police seized cash and drug paraphernalia from her room and they say she also put heroin in her iv drip. law enforcement officials in boston reported no security threats other than some unattended bags during the marathon. a million people enjoyed the sunshine while they cheered on the tens of thousands of runners. on the course were many who suffered injuries in the blast. one is heather abbott who ran the last half mile with the woman who saved her life. >> we're not going to let anything stop us. boston has its marathon back. >> meb keflezighi was the top male finisher. the first american to win since 1983 and rita jeptoo won for the second straight year. she's from kenya.

well of boeing 767, both aviation and medical experts greeted the news with extreme skepticism. >> how would someone get in that part of the jumbo jet? abc's ryan owens checked it out. >> reporter: in the middle of california's mojave desert sits an airplane graveyard. one jet identical to the one the fbi believes the teen used to take his harrowing ride. walking under the belly of a 767 you get an idea of how big it is and how difficult it would be to pull off. for example, take a look at these tires. mechanics say each of them weighs several hundred pounds. all of this together, sure you could climb it. but at some point it will swing up to the belly and how you survive it is difficult. it's certainly possible for someone to climb these gears, there's no place for the person to go, even a small teenage boy. let me explain why.
see this massive door here? after takeoff it swings open to make room for the huge tires. inside of that compartment, there's really no room for anything else but those awfully big tires. still stowaways have managed to survive, though some endured severe frostbite like this man who flew from havana to madrid in a dc-8, more than 4500 miles. this man who flew from vienna to london, perhaps we can add another name to the list of unlikely survivors. ryan owens, abc news, mojave, california. >> a lot of people cannot believe this happened. it has happened in the past. ryan showed you a couple of examples. check this out. from 1947 to january 2004 there were reported 103 stowaway attempts involving 92 flights. of them, 76% of them die which is 79 people. so there's a very small survival rate. >> absolutely. positively. >> lucky kid. >> very lucky kid. i hope he doesn't have any damage from this.
