HONOLULU - A teenager who stowed away in the wheel well of an airplane for a five-hour flight from California to Hawaii is resting at a Honolulu hospital.

Hawaii's Department of Human Services said in a statement Tuesday that child welfare services officials are continuing to work to ensure his safe return home.

The department didn't indicate when the 15-year-old would be going back to California.

American Medical Response air and ground ambulances flew him from Maui to Oahu and drove him to a Honolulu hospital Sunday evening.

American Medical Response Maui operations manager Curt Morimoto says the child was in very stable condition.

Officials say the boy was knocked out most of the 5 1/2-hour flight and didn't regain consciousness until an hour after the Hawaiian Airlines plane landed.
