- A boy hid inside an aeroplane's engine, close to the propeller, in an attempt to relocate from his country
- Before the plane's takeoff time, security agents spotted the stowaway and asked him to come down from his unsafe hiding place
- Many who reacted to his video wondered about the level of desperation that could have pushed him
A video showing a young boy who had hidden inside a plane's engine being ushered out by security officials has stirred reactions on social media.
According to Tunde Ednut on Instagram, the African boy was so desperate to relocate abroad that he never considered his safety.
Very unsafe move
If the plane had started when he was still in there, it could have been a different story as he was so close to the propeller.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young Ghanaian lady by the name of Eva Yeboah opened up about some of her regrets after moving to the UK.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Eva revealed that she would not have moved abroad if she had a job in Ghana that made it possible to save at least Ghc300.
She gave that response after the host, DJ Nyaami asked her if she would advise the youth in Ghana to migrate. Eva intimated that she has never known happiness since she moved to the UK two years ago.
