HONOLULU, Hawaii -- Surveillance video from the airport shows last month's teenage stowaway, hopping out of the wheel well of the jet.

The 15-year-old survived a five-hour flight from California to Hawaii on April 20.

Authorities say he was trying to see his mom in Somalia and likely picked a plane at random.

There has been skepticism about if it really happened because of the long odds of surviving that length of time in the thin, frigid air at the high altitude the plane flys during that trip.

But the video certainly lends credibility to the claims. Watch it for yourself above. It shows the teen dropping down at the beginning and then walking on the tarmac.
