WOW. How is this possible!?
How is it possible for a person to LIVE at an airport for 3 months without detection?
More importantly, how is it possible for a person to LIVE at an airport for 3 months?!! Drinking Diet Cherry Coke & eating dry pretzels?
Upsides? Nice cable package. All the channels. Getting your steps in should be easy.
Downsides? The overpriced food. How would that be sustainable? Unless the savings account was packed up pretty good. Showering? I guess you're just washing your face and buying hygiene travel kits?
Chicago, IL -- A 36-year-old California managed to live at Chicago's O'Hare International for three months, according to prosecutors and the Chicago Tribune.
Aditya Singh, 36, was charged with felony criminal trespass to a restricted area of an airport and misdemeanor theft.
According to police, Singh went to O'Hare on Oct. 19, but was afraid to fly home because of the coronavirus.
"it shows how things can slip through the cracks," transportation expert Joseph Schwieterman said. "You get an idea at the airport and can go weeks without being detected. It’s really remarkable that in this day and age and security, this occurred."
On Saturday, two United Airlines employees approached Singh and asked for his identification. He displayed a badge, but it actually belonged to an operations manager who had reported it missing Oct. 26. The employees then called 911.
"A lot of people no doubt look back and are embarrassed, gate agents, that probably saw this individual," Schwieterman said.
Singh said he was able to survive by getting food from other passengers.
"There is no real risk to safety here, that's the good news," Schwieterman added. "It just shows how different parts may not talk to each other, question each other."
