    Scottish singer dons 12 layers to avoid baggage charge, collapses on flight

    James McElvar, a singer with Scottish boy band Rewind, didn't want to pay an excess baggage charge when flying from London to Glasgow. So the 19-year-old put on six T-shirts, four jumpers, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of jogging pants, two jackets and two hats, before boarding the flight.

    Once on board, he rapidly began vomiting and then collapsed with heat exhaustion. He had to be given oxygen on board and medics who treated him later said he was lucky to be alive.

    Hopefully the band gets some recognition so he'll have enough money to pay the baggage fee from now on.
