What, the heck? Running away from home, yes, lets fly to Hawaii in Z class.... This is what gets me...

He survived a lack of oxygen and freezing temperatures as the plane climbed to 12,000m (39,000ft).Mr Simon said the boy had been unconscious for most of the journey.


And he still lives... Geez, one very lucky kid. Its one way I hope I will never fly - The higher the class letter, the better.

I'm not sure if that's desperation or stupidity.

Either way, he's incredibly lucky to have survived.
