An Air France 747-400 that had landed in LAX from a flight from "?" had someone stay in the nosewheel and survive the whole flight! Right now, he is in critical condition with severe Hypothermia. Can you belive this!??! Doesn't it get up to -60F up at 35,000ft?

This was on the news this morning in Dallas. Nevermind the cold, I don't see how he did not die of oxygen starvation. There has got to be something not told here. I am reasonably sure no one can survive several hours at over 30,000 feet. I'd like to see the rest of the story.

People who go up Mt. Everest bring Oxygen tanks so whoever this guy was he had to have something with him... there's just not enough air out there - maybe he stuck his head out of the gear doors and rammed air down his throat..?
