Police: Teen Got Into Plane While It Sat On The Runway

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A teen with ties to Baltimore managed to hide in the wheel well of a passenger jet before falling to his death on the plane’s approach to Boston.

Now there’s new information on the case.

Delvonte Tisdale likely got into the plane as it sat on the runway before take-off from Charlotte. That’s according to a new report from the Charlotte Police Department.

Police would not reveal how he got access to the tarmac, but the airport has since stepped up security.

      While I disagree with your egregious use of capital letters, I do agree that this kid was pretty dumb. Even if he managed to hang on for the entire flight (he didn’t), the air at 30,000 feet has little oxygen, and is very hard to breathe in.

    Tell your children that what they see in the movies can’t be done in real life. 800,000 broken bones a year by kids doing bike tricks, ski tricks, 4 wheeler tricks, motorcycle tricks, etc., etc, etc,. Now this kid gets killed trying to do something he saw in a movie. ITS NOT REAL!!!!!!! Talk to your children!

    I dont know, he almost made it all the way to Boston so it must be kinda real.

  • Jon

    Darwin has an award for this schmuck.

    SO I guess its time to point the finger at someone else in an attempt to suck up a million dollar payday by the family. Anyone stupid enough to pull such a stunt is a moron in my book. The only lawsuit should be tresspassing.

    I can see one heck of a law suit coming soon to our “neighborhood”! Of course there will be no defense in the “tresspassing”! Those who didn’t know will be slammed against a wall to include but not limited to the airline and their personnel as well as any public or private security company at the airport. It will all come down to “he didn’t know any better”. I still feel sorry for his family, but millions of dollars will never bring their son back – only one(s) who will benefit will be immediate members of the family.
