The man was discovered by baggage handlers at Logan International Airport after the plane landed there Saturday. He told police he'd been accidentally locked inside the pressurized luggage compartment while taking a nap.

The 21-year-old man says he called JetBlue Airways officials when he realized he was no longer on the ground.

A state police spokesman says the man wasn't charged with any crime and was returned to New York when it was determined he wasn't dangerous.

JetBlue Airways Corp. says it's investigating.
