Packed: An Eritrean migrant was caught hiding inside a suitcase after terrified train passengers heard moans coming from the bag as it entered Switzerland.
Shocked passengers alerted authorities after hearing strange noises coming from the unattended bag.
Guards removed the case from the train at Chiasso and were stunned when a human hand emerged.
