When a plane from London arrived at Sydeny airport,workers began to unload a number of boxes which contained clothing.No one could account for the fact that one of the boxes was extremely heavy.It suddenly occurred to one of the workers to open up the box.He was astonished at what he found.A man was lying in the box on top of a pile of woollen goods.He was so surprised at being discoved that he didn’t even try to run away.After he was arrested,the man admitted hiding in the box before the plane left London.He had a long and uncomfortable trip ,for he had been confined to the wooden box for over eighteen hours.The man was ordered to pay £3,500 for the cost of the trip. The normal price of a ticket is £2,000!
