(Newser) – Body parts fell from the sky in Saudi Arabia yesterday, and no, this is not the plot of a horror movie. A witness in Jeddah reported the falling remains to police, AFP reports, and officials think they could be what's left of someone who got trapped in an airplane's wheel bay. People are known to climb inside the landing gear bays in an attempt to cross the border, but most end up freezing to death. An investigation is under way. RT notes that a Saudi plane made an emergency landing early yesterday after the cockpit reported a problem with the rear wheel, but it's not clear if the incidents are connected.
