(Arlington, VA) -- The U.S. military is investigating the discovery of a child's body in the wheel well of a military aircraft at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby described the child as a young male of unknown nationality. He said it is not known how the apparent stowaway got into the cargo aircraft. Admiral Kirby told a briefing today that the aircraft had just returned from Africa. In addition to the tragic discovery of the dead child, Kirby said officials are investigating obvious security concerns.
