Police said Tuesday they plan to interview a California teen who stowed away on a Hawaii-bound flight two weeks ago, surviving sub-freezing temperatures in the wheel well of a jetliner as it crossed the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, Hawaii transportation officials released surveillance video of Yahya Abdi hopping from the jet's wheel well April 20 after the a 5-hour flight.
You can see the 15-year-old Somali teen drop from the wheel well at 31 seconds into the video and then stumble around.
This raw video (see on all devices here) is a bit longer and shows airport crews arriving but doing little or not noticing the teen.
