Teen stowaway shows holes in vast airport security

A 16-year-old boy, seen sitting upright on a stretcher, stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui. He is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said.
