High Flying Shenanigans Cost NC Teen His Life

BOSTON, Mass. ---- A North Carolina teenager whose severely damaged body was found in Milton, Mass may have stowed away in the wheel well of a jetliner before falling to his death during the plane’s landing authorities said.

Jonette Washington, the mother of 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale, tells The Boston Globe that her son was afraid of heights and had never flown in his life.

Tisdale a member of the Air Force ROTC in high school had an aversion to heights and didn’t even like being in tall buildings Washington said.

On November 15 Tisdale’s mangled body was found in suburban Boston. Investigators say he may have stowed away in the wheel well of the plane from Charlotte, N.C. and fallen out when the plane lowered its landing gear on approach to Boston.

Officials said planes drop their landing wheels at between 1,500 and 2,900 feet right above Milton near the Blue Hills.

The boy’s body showed severe head trauma, his arms and legs were broken and some of his remains were found in two places.

Washington, who lives in Baltimore, says something must have been building up inside him to prompt him to do something so drastic and out of character.
