LONDON - With airlines nickel-and-diming you all the way to the parking meter, you can bet if there's a way to save money, someone will find it.  And that's exactly what happened when a member of a boy band hailing from Scotland called Rewind thought he was gonna outsmart the airline.

James McElvar decided to wear all of his clothes to avoid a baggage fee during a recent flight from London to Glasgow. So, what all did he have on? Six shirts, five sweaters, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of sweatpants, two jackets and two hats.

Halfway through the flight, the 19-year old collapsed from heat exhaustion! Paramedics had to give him oxygen and told him he was lucky to be alive.

Let this be a lesson to you, avoiding a $70 baggage fee isn't worth risking your life.
