Photos show a huge crater in the garden after a body fell 3,500ft from a plane.
The body of a suspected stowaway fell from a Kenya Airways aircraft as it flew to Heathrow Airport. The plane passed over the house at around 3:30 pm moving at 200mph.
After the plane opened its landing gear, the body fell and landed in a garden in South London. It was then reported by a shocked tenant of the home.
A friend of the tenant who was outside when the body fell said to The Sun: “He was so lucky not to be hit and killed. The impact obliterated the body.”
The friend added: “He didn’t even realisewhat it was to begin with. He was asleep and then there was a huge impact.
“The body literally landed one metre away from him and was obliterated. My friend was very shaken.
“There were a few of us in the house at the time and it was lucky only one of us was in the garden. Nobody would have survived being hit. The impact was horrific.”
A neighbor also said: “I heard a ‘whomp’ so I went to look out the window. At first, I thought it was a tramp asleep.
“I had a closer look. I saw there was blood all over the walls of the garden and his head was not in a good way.
“I spoke to Heathrow and they said this happens once every five years. There was a previous man who was frozen and this one, he was like an ice block.”
Police said in a statement after the incident: “A bag, water and some food were discovered in the landing gear compartment once it landed at the airport.
“Enquiries continue, led by the South Central Command Unit and the Met’s Aviation Policing Command. Officers will be liaising with the airline and international authorities.”
