Guillermo Rosales, 13, who stowed away in the wheel well of a Colombian jet survived sub-zero temperatures at 35,000ft on a three-hour flight across the Caribbean, AP reports from Miami. He tumbled out of the DC-8 in Miami unconscious and 'looking like a ball of snow,' according to employees of the Arca air cargo company, which ships flowers from Bogota.

Stowaways are normally sent back home immediately, but immigration officials made an exception in this case. A local television station reported that the boy wanted to visit an aunt in Miami.
