"According to public relations, the worker was dealing with the storage of luggage when he passed out in the aircraft hold and had been forgotten inside."

'Passed out' most likely = hungover, laid down for a second, only to find himself at FL350 when he woke up, if he woke up before they found him.
I recall a similar story a few years back but I don't know what airline or city..i worked for an airline for many years (u.s.)and our "rampers" knew who was working with them to load or unload an aircraft..usually 2 or 3 employees who rode the "tug" from the bag belt area to the plane,and they didn't leave until all 2 or 3 were there and fact,often the same people would be the "guides" for pushback and taxi..difference in rules,regulations and what country I guess...
