(AP) — Authorities say a stowaway on a flight from the Dominican Republic to Miami was spotted emerging from the plane’s wheel well and sent back home.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Mike Silva said Monday the man was a Dominican national.

Silva said Miami-Dade Police spotted him exiting the wheel well after American Airlines flight 1026 from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, landed Saturday at Miami International Airport.

Police detained the man, whose name wasn’t released. Silva said he was medically cleared, processed as a stowaway by federal authorities and returned to the Dominican Republic.

Silva said local and federal authorities searched the plane and cleared it to resume normal operations.

Airline spokesman Ross Feinstein said the airline was reviewing the incident with Las Americas International Airport officials.

  1. See how many people are announcing a solar eclipse that everyone can be cautious is that. If we have announced the return of the crisis, so many people would also be cautious, from the bottom of Satan's claws, So that there is no time to burn for time and eternity in hell, the map tells us that the return of the crisis is near, do not let the door be closed without us. Also, the people who hear this message go to the island.
