Two unidentified foreigners fell from a plane and died near Shanghai's Pudong International Airport yesterday, police said.
At around 11 a.m., police in the city's Laogang area found the bodies of two white men, both about 30 years old, a few minutes after receiving a call from locals, said Cai Jun, one of the first police officers to arrive on the scene.
"One of them fell onto a small bush and another fell into a house after going through the roof," Cai said.
Witnesses said they saw the men dropping from the bottom of a plane flying for Pudong Airport.
Police said they suspected the two men were stowaways who hid in the baggage hold and fell when the plane opened its landing gear.
The skin of each man was obviously frostbitten, Cai
