How I Survived Falling From A Plane
Themba Cabeka, a man who flew from South Africa to London by hiding in the wheel of a plane.
Themba takes us through his life living on the streets in South Africa and how he, and his friend Carlito, came up with a plan to fly to the UK.
On the flight Themba and Carlito hid in the plane’s undercarriage. Eventually they passed out due to lack of oxygen as temperatures in the undercarriage reached -60 degrees celsius.
We also spoke to Themba’s friend, Gabriel Frood, who has been helping Themba get back on his feet in his new home in Liverpool.
