The body of a dead child has been discovered in wheel well of a US Air Force plane that landed in Germany, NBC News reported.
It is believed that the youngster climbed aboard the C-130 Hercules transporter in Mali, but the flight made several stops before coming to its final destination at the Ramstein Air Base.

German authorities have taken charge of the investigation and autopsy because the body is not American. The US military is also investigating how he got into the wheel well in what appears to be a serious security breach.
