Aditya Singh wandered the security area of Chicago's O'Hare airport for three months before he was finally arrested, reports the BBC. He had a return flight but claimed to be too afraid of Covid to board it. He's charged with criminal trespass; he allegedly snagged an employee's lanyard to avoid challenge.
Cook County Judge Susana Ortiz expressed surprise at the circumstances of the case. "So if I understand you correctly, you're telling me that an unauthorised, non-employee individual was allegedly living within a secure part of the O'Hare airport terminal from 19 October 2020 to 16 January 2021, and was not detected? I want to understand you correctly," she said to the prosecutor who outlined the allegations on Sunday.
