Transcript for Surveillance Video of Teen Stowaway After Flight
Now, to new video of the California teen who stowed away on a flight to Hawaii. Video shows the moment he emerged from the wheel well, after surviving the five-hour flight. David Kerley is at Reagan national airport with more on this. Good morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, robin. These are the first images we see of the teen. And it's remarkable to watch him climbing out of a wide-body jetliner. Look closely. It starts with a dangling leg. Then, the 15-year-old stowaway, dropping to the tarmac below. You see emerges beneath the wing. Disoriented, wobbly on his feet. Seconds later, he talks to an airport worker. That worker alerts security. It's hard to tell what position he's in. But clearly, he's able to walk. That alone is a miracle. Reporter: The surveillance footage was taken been before 11:30 in the morning on April 20th. That was an hour after the five-plus hour flight landed in maui from San Jose, California. And it seems to confirm the story, that with no oxygen, at 38,000 feet and temperatures below 50 below zero, he survived. His mother said when I learned of my son's attempt to come here, I cried a lot. The FBI says he stowedaway after fighting with his family and ran away from home. This morning, he is back in the San Jose area and is in the custody of social services. Police there want to talk to him and find out how he got over that fence at the San Jose airport and hid in that plane. It may be there's no charges that will be filed. But we have to do a thorough investigation. Reporter: We may here his story. Negotiating with an attorney to try to get him to talk to the media, some time soon. Remember how many people were skeptical. And I sure was. And you see the video. I'm surprised no charges may be filed. We're going to turn to Monica lewinsky, speaking out
