    UK - Sunday morning calm in plush London suburb shattered as a man falls from the sky

    Horror of residents in plush London suburb as stowaway who had
    been clinging to a plane plunges to his death in the middle of street

    A stowaway appears to have plunged thousands of feet onto a quiet residential street after his frozen body dropped out of an aeroplane's undercarriage as it came in to land.

    The body of the man, thought to be in his 30s and from North Africa, was found on a car parked in a road near London Heathrow Airport by shocked residents at 7:55am yesterday morning.

    Locals in Mortlake, south west London, said the man had suffered multiple injuries and parts of his body had flown up to 20ft away ‘like a melon being whacked’ - but nobody else was injured.

    It's almost the Icarus myth in reverse - the desire for advanced knowledge and the wax wings melting in the sun, and the desire for basic freedoms but finding frozen death instead; and both falling from the sky.

    Well I doubt the "plunges to his death" part. It's a pretty safe bet that a frozen man was already dead before he plunged.

    Catherine Lambert, 41, a neighborhood resident, said, "I felt, what was he running away from? What made him think he could? And how will his family ever know? He's a lost soul now; his father and mother are probably waiting for him to make contact."
