In your dose of weird news for the day, we bring you the story of a baggage handler who was trapped inside the cargo hold of a plane and was lucky to be found and released before takeoff. The US Airways plane was set to depart from Washington Reagan National Airport Monday heading to Hartford, Conn.
The baggage dude had apparently crawled into the cargo bay to load luggage when a fellow worker shut the door, not realizing that he was inside. Passengers alerted crew members to the sounds of pounding and shouting from the floor beneath them and this led to the handler being discovered. The airline says they are actually investigating this funny incident.
