Hole left in garden where frozen man landed after falling 3,500ft from plane
Photos show the spot where a man landed when he fell from a Kenya Airways plane as it approached Heathrow Airport on Sunday June 30th.

The body of the stowaway fell to the ground from the flight from Nairobi as it opened its landing gear while approaching Heathrow. The body landed in a garden, missing the sunbathing tenant of the home by just three feet.

The 3,500ft fall left a crater in the garden of a home in Offerton Road, Clapham, South London. The body landed partly on concrete slabs and partly on a lawn, leaving a massive hole in the garden.

One tenant at the rented mid-terrace property was in the garden when the body landed just yards away from him and blood splattered all over the walls of the garden.

A male neighbour said: "He was very shaken. He had been sunbathing and he landed one metre away from him."

A female neighbour told MailOnline: "There was an almighty bang. At first I thought it was some scaffolding falling down and thought nothing more about it.  My husband decided to see what was going on and went upstairs to take a look. He was obviously quite shocked and went out into the street where my neighbour was standing on the phone to the police.

"He was really shaken up. He'd been in the garden when it happened and the body must have landed so close to where he was. He was obviously quite shocked and went out into the street where my neighbour was standing on the phone to the police.

"He was really shaken up. He'd been in the garden when it happened and the body must have landed so close to where he was.

"My husband came back in and I asked him what was going on and he said 'haven't you seen the man? The man who fell from the sky?'

"I wondered what he was talking about and went up to see for myself and there in the middle of the lawn was a body of a man."

The male neighbour, who asked not to be named, added: "I heard a 'whomp' - I went upstairs to look out of a window. At first I thought it was a tramp asleep in the garden.

"He had all of his clothes on and everything. I had a closer look and saw there was blood all over the walls of the garden. His head was not in a good way. I realised immediately that he had fallen, so I went outside and it was just then the neighbour came out and he was very shaken."

The stowaway, who was wearing a blue t-shirt and jeans, snuck onto the landing gear of the plane at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The plane left the Kenya Airport at 9.19am local time and arrived London at 3.42pm.

Heathrow Airport said things like this (stowaways sneaking onto planes) happens once every five years.
