The father of the teenager who climbed into the wheel well of a jet at the San Jose airport and survived a 5-hour flight to Honolulu says he plans to fly to Hawaii soon to bring his son home to California.

Abdulahi Yusuf is from Somalia, and says his 15-year-old son is "struggling adjusting to life in this country.''

He says his son didn't receive formal education in the war-torn African nation, where the boy's mother remains in a refugee camp.
