[January 03, 2017]    (Reuters) - A baggage handler was found inside the cargo hold of a plane that had flown into Washington D.C. from Charlotte, North Carolina, airline staff said on Monday.


Officials were still trying to find out how the man ended up locked in with the luggage on United Express flight 6060, United Airlines [UALCO.UL] spokeswoman Erin Benson said.

The man, who was taken from the plane after it landed at Washington's Dulles International Airport on Sunday, was not injured, she added.
