Hot off the runway, these Pakistani foreigners got themselves into some trouble when they tried to enter South Africa illegally.

The debacle went down at OR Tambo's International wing in Johannesburg. 

The foreign nationals were caught in a fire hydrant tunnel system last week by SAPS.

As reported by IOL, during a briefing at the airport on Saturday, Minister of Home Affairs, Aaron Motsoaledi, said four of the men are Bangladeshi nationals and four are Pakistani.

These men made a stop in South Africa while they were on a journey. They were supposed to enter the transit lounge but decided to go about their own illegal activity in an attempt to enter South Africa.

In the video above, a few men are seen lying flat on the floor while a police officer requests that the people inside the tunnel crawl out.

After much struggle, the men were eventually cuffed and are now facing charges.

More information will be shared on this developing issue when available.
