A video released by the Hawaii Department of Transportation on Tuesday shows the Santa Clara boy who stowed away in an airplane's wheel well last month as he emerges from beneath the wing of the 767 after it landed in Maui.
The April 20 video, which has a time and date stamp, shows a shaky Yahya Abdi drop to the ground behind the airplane's left engine shortly after 11:25 a.m., then walk toward the front of the plane before communicating with a worker on the tarmac.
The following day, Hawaii officials released a statement that said a juvenile had been found walking on the tarmac at Kahului Airport.
"The teen appeared disoriented and was questioned by a worker near the plane who alerted security," said the statement. "TSA and the FBI were also contacted."
Yahya's ordeal made international headlines after he hopped a barbed wire fence at Mineta San Jose International Airport and climbed into the wheel well of the Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767.
He somehow survived the perilous 5½-hour flight in the unpressurized compartment, in which temperatures dropped well below freezing at extreme altitude.
On Friday, the Hawaii Department of Human Services confirmed that the 15-year-old was no longer in the state. He had been under the agency's watch at a Honolulu children's hospital, where he was treated for breathing difficulties.
Yahya reportedly ran away from home due to family discord. On Saturday, a source close to the family said Yahya was in the care of Santa Clara County Social Services Agency.
