Two People Killed in Ecuador After Falling Off New York-Bound Plane

Two People Killed in Ecuador After Falling Off New York-Bound Plane”

Two stowaways who hid in a New York-bound aircraft's landing gear fell to their death just moments after take off.

Police would not reveal the identities or nationalities of the men, but said they likely fainted or were ejected during take-off.

The flight which originated in Lima was forced to circle back and make an emergency landing Jose Joaquin de Olmedo International Airport, LATAM Airlines Group spokesman David Harry said.

The Latam-operated flight continued its journey, although authorities said the aircraft may be required to return to Ecuador to assist with the investigation. Investigators are now looking into whether the two stowaways jumped from the landing gear in an attempt to get off the plane, or "if the system itself expelled them", according to the Latin America Herald Tribune.

Bustamante said as one of the workers approached he "saw two people - one on the runway and the other in the grass area. From the characteristics of the citizens, they may come from Peru, and from here [from the flight] they would go to the United States, to NY". This gives an indication of many people trying to escape from one place to the other for greener pastures.

The men were not passengers, Harry confirmed in a statement, adding that the airline has been cooperating with investigative authorities.
