  • The property in Clapham South London where the stowaway hit the ground into a residential garden

In 2015, the body of a man landed on a shop in Richmond having clung on in the undercarriage of a plane from Johannesburg in South Africa to Heathrow.

The body landed just a few feet from a man asleep in his back garden in Clapham.

Police said on Monday that a bag, water and some food was found in the landing gear compartment of the plane once it arrived at Heathrow.

The dead man landed in a garden in Clapham, South London, 27 kilometres from the airport, scaring the owner of the house, who immediately called the police.

"If it had been two seconds later, he would have landed on the common where there were hundreds of people - my kids were in the garden 15 minutes before [he fell]", the unnamed resident told the BBC.

"He was so lucky not to be hit and killed".

An eyewitness, who has asked not to be named told the PA that a "whomp" sound erupted as the body hit the ground drawing his attention to the scene. "The impact obliterated the body", the neighbor told The Sun newspaper. "Shocking for him and sad for whoever poor person was who fell".

The plane spotter had arrived nearly at the same time as the police and told them the body had fallen from a Kenyan Airways flight. "They were here for about five hours to start the clean-up operation". An initial investigation found some personal items in the plane's landing gear compartment, suggesting that was his hideaway.

Describing the victim, the neighbour added: "One of the reasons his body was so intact was because his body was an ice block".

Kenya Airways confirmed the incident to local media.

Kenya Airways said the loss of life was "unfortunate", and expressed its condolences.

The body, which police said is believed to be male, has not been identified. No damage was done to the aircraft, and it was cleared for operation.

Police stated the man is not yet identified and the post-mortem examination will be conducted.

He added that the identity of the man is yet to be determined.
