Images of footprints and handprints inside the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45 jetliner appear to bolster the fantastic story of a Santa Clara teenager who reportedly survived a frigid, perilous journey cooped up inside as a stowaway. The images, including of a footprint on the tire below the wheel well, were taken by Hawaii News Now,  and appear to support the boy's story of surviving the 5-1/2 hour flight from San Jose while enduring sub-zero temperatures and deathly thin air. Authorities said it was a miracle the 15-year-old boy survived in the wheel well, as oxygen was limited at the jet's cruising altitude of 38,000 feet, and the temperature could have dropped to 50 degrees below zero or lower.

The San Francisco 49ers' future home in Santa Clara will be an upgrade for the Bay Area team -- heck, it's already a Super Bowl contender. At the NFL's fall meeting in Chicago on Tuesday, team owners selected South Florida and San Francisco as finalists to host Super Bowl L in 2016. The owners are expected to make the final choice in May. If San Francisco isn't named the 2016 host, it still has another shot at the big game. The city not selected to host the 2016 game will compete against Houston, which was selected as a finalist to host the 2017 game.

A driver for a steel company was killed Monday morning when the rebar he was delivering for the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium fell on him, marking the second construction-related death at the site this year. The incident occurred about 7 a.m. at the team's new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Cal/OSHA spokeswoman Kathleen Hennessy said.  The worker was a 61-year-old man from Vacaville, she said. The man's name was not immediately available and the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner was unavailable Monday.

Saint Clare is the patron saint of good weather, and she smiled on her namesake school Saturday night. Rain squalls swept through the Bay Area throughout the afternoon, but the evening fell clear and dry. Santa Clara took advantage of the break in the weather to drown Cal Lutheran, 38-15, before a crowd of 1,179 in a nonconference game at Buck Shaw Stadium. "I thought we were better than they were coming into the game, and rain is a great equalizer," Santa Clara Coach Terry Malley said.

Both Pepperdine and Santa Clara were without their starting point guards Friday night, and without their direction, both teams struggled. But the Broncos, playing their usual physical game, eventually won the struggle, 66-57, before 4,912 at Toso Pavilion. Santa Clara raised its West Coast Athletic Conference record to 6-1 and its overall mark to 15-5. Pepperdine is 13-7 and 5-2.

For the first 11 1/2 minutes of Friday's West Coast Conference game between Pepperdine and Santa Clara, the student section at Firestone Fieldhouse seemed more ready to play than either team did offensively. But the Waves awoke for three minutes in the first half, outscoring the Broncos, 11-0, then let their defense and Santa Clara's errors keep the Broncos from getting close, winning a mistake-filled game, 67-56, before 2,238 at Malibu.

The dark of night still draped Mineta San Jose International Airport when a 15-year-old boy from nearby Santa Clara wandered onto a secure airport ramp and toward a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767. Then he disappeared. The slight teenager, first seen on a security camera video, would not appear again until later Sunday morning, when airline workers spotted him 2,350 miles to the west, walking on the tarmac at Kahului Airport on the island of Maui. In the interim, authorities say, the boy survived a perilous, 5 1/2 -hour odyssey - enduring frigid temperatures, oxygen deprivation and a compartment unfit for human habitation - as he traveled over the Pacific Ocean in the jet's wheel well.

A winter storm that was only expected to slightly dampen the L.A. Basin pelted the Bay Area on Thursday, causing minor flooding and traffic woes for commuters. A flood watch was also issued for Monterey, Santa Benito, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties as the storm system moved across California, creating the potential for heavy rainfall to cause small creeks and streams to breach their banks. Excess runoff could also create "ponding" in urban areas, the National Weather Service said.

San Jose State University followed proper guidelines in investigating and acting against four white students accused of racially harassing a black roommate over several months last fall, a report charged with reviewing the university's response to the incident has found. But campus President Mohammad Qayoumi was not fully briefed on the matter until weeks later, missing the opportunity to communicate with the victim's family and failing to address overall campus security issues sooner, the report released Monday found.

 Tied after three quarters at 48-48, Hart and St. Francis seemed headed to a close finish on Monday night in a battle of two 7-1 basketball teams. But the Indians' defense took charge in the final eight minutes, not allowing a single basket en route to a 63-54 victory. Lewis Stallworth finished with 21 points. Andrew MacArthur had 12 points and reserve guard Colby Kaneshiro made key contributions on defense and with a couple of baskets in the fourth quarter for Hart (8-1). Hart was able to stop St. Francis' Kyle Leufroy, who had made eight consecutive shots at one point in the third quarter.

NASA's extraterrestrial smartphone has phoned home. The 4-inch-square satellite, PhoneSat 2.4, which uses an off-the-shelf Samsung Nexus S phone running Google's Android operating system, transmitted data back to its Santa Clara University ground station, the space agency announced last week. As the number implies, this is not the first smartphone NASA has hurled into orbit. The first, in April, proved the concept of using commercially available electronics for satellites in low-Earth orbit.
