Body remains found on wheels of plane in Riyadh

It just does not pay to be late for your plane (I bet his luggage got there on time)

(Reuters) - Workers at Riyadh airport found the remains of a body on the tires of a plane which arrived from Beirut early Saturday, an airport source in Beirut said.

The source said some passengers on the Saudi Arabian airline Nas Air flight had reported seeing a man with a backpack running toward the plane shortly before it took off from Beirut.

They told the pilot what they had seen, the source said, but the flight continued to Saudi Arabia and the body was only discovered after the plane had landed and been inspected.

Saudi and Lebanese officials were trying to establish the identity of the dead person, the source said.
