The call came from under the bus

An American tourist was trapped in the luggage hold of an Israeli bus while traveling from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

But luckily, he had cell phone reception there.

The 19-year-old from New Jersey — Israeli media did not report where in New Jersey — had climbed into the space under the bus to remove his suitcase. And then the door closed. And he was on the wrong side of the door.

He called police and the police tracked the bus using GPS and stopped it about 20 minutes later, Ynet reported.

While waiting for rescue, he posted to Instagram.

“My heart is pounding fast, but I’m fine. I called the police. In the meantime, I’m here among all the bags and suitcases. It’s really stressful,” the teen wrote.
