Drunk gentleman falls asleep in cargo hold of a plane, wakes up in a new city

A drunken baggage handler for Piedmont Airlines was in Kansas City when he took a snooze on the job. Just a bit later he woke up to find himself in Chicago. The gentleman had taken his lie down in the cargo hold on a Boeing 737 American Airlines flight.

Although there were 80 passengers onboard, the heated, pressurized cargo hold was empty, making for a cozy napping nook. The man wasn't hurt. He was sent back to Kansas City with no charges pressed.

It's one hell of a way to fly for free.
