Woman charged after running on San Francisco airport runway

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A woman has pleaded not guilty to trespassing charges after she got onto a runway at San Francisco International Airport with plans to stow away on a jet bound for Central America.

Prosecutors say Adriana Anabela Monterroso-Santos allegedly walked on a runway Wednesday and waved her arms at a plane.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe tells the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/19imeqe) the 42-year-old woman was living in a homeless shelter near the airport.

Wagstaffe says the woman told authorities she was hoping to hide in the cargo hold of a jet headed to her home country of Guatemala.

She told officials she got the idea after hearing about the Santa Clara teenager who survived a five-hour flight from San Jose to Maui in the wheel well of a jet.
