HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — A commercial airline pilot is accused of swallowing dozens of bags of cocaine before getting on board a flight from Colombia in an effort to smuggle the drugs into the U.S.

KPRC-TV reports that 49-year-old Stanley Rafael Hill, a Dallas-area pilot, swallowed 62 small rubber sacks of cocaine before getting on board the plane as a passenger on the flight to Houston.

Hill reportedly called for paramedics from a Houston hotel shortly after landing at George Bush Intercontinental Airport Saturday because one of the cocaine bags burst inside his stomach.

KPRC reports that Hill underwent emergency surgery at Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital where he is currently being guarded by police inside his hospital room.

Hill has been charged with felony possession of drugs with intent to deliver and is being held on $500,000 bond.
