    Overcome by sleep, FedEx worker accidentally stows away on flight - Commercial Appeal

    A FedEx Express hub worker is believed to have napped his way from Memphis to Lubbock after unintentionally falling asleep while loading a plane, officials said.

    The employee, who was not identified, reportedly woke up in mid-flight, knocked on the cabin door and communicated with pilots via telephone.

    The pilots didn't open the cabin door, but directed the employee to sit in a jump seat-- an extra seat in the cargo hold -- for landing, said Kelly Campbell, director of Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport.
