(Newser) – A JetBlue employee ended up flying from New York to Boston in a plane's cargo hold after dozing off while stacking luggage, the Boston Globe reports. The panicked baggage handler called the airline when he woke and realized he was airborne. The worker was uninjured, and was returned to New York—in the passenger cabin—after being interviewed by police.
