Manchester, July 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Liam Corcoran is a young boy of 11 years who became a stowaway on a plane that was headed to Rome from Manchester. Liam said that nobody asked to see if he had any travel documents the whole time.

He traveled in the without any problems until the plane landed
in Rome. Liam says that the process of getting in to the plane and traveling all the way to Rome was easier than doing homework. He said that nobody gave him any notice as he passed through all the checkpoints leading to the plane.

He said that he had gone to look for a lavatory and the search landed him in the plane headed to Rome. Nobody was aware of an extra passenger on the plane until those who were going on holiday in the plane alerted the captain.

Liam was on a shopping trip with his mother near the airport who thought that her son had been abducted when she did not find him. Liam’s mother said that authorities called her four hours after she had lost her son and told her that her son had been a stowaway in a plane that was headed to Rome.

She wonders how they could not have noticed Liam boarding the plane and says that if they could not notice Liam, there is a chance that a terrorist can pass through them without getting noticed as well.
