The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification. "Kid's lucky to be alive," Simon said.

In this Feb. 11, 2014 photo, a visitor stands near sculptures at Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall in Nanjing, in eastern China's Jiangsu province. The Tokyo shrine and the memorial hall in Nanjing, as Nanking is now called, are physical embodiments of divergent views of history that still strain China-Japan relations, 70 years after the war. They complicate America's objective of maintaining peace and stability in the Pacific, as President Barack Obama starts a 4-country Asian tour in Japan this week. The implications are potentially serious, particularly over contested uninhabited islands called the Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)NANJING, China (AP) — Strolling through China's sprawling memorial to a 1937 massacre by Japanese troops, a 64-year-old retired teacher said the incident remains an open wound.
