Fearing the novel coronavirus, he stayed at the airport for three months? According to the British Guardian on the 18th, an American man from California has lived at Chicago International Airport for three months.
He told the police that he was too afraid of the novel coronavirus to return to his home in Los Angeles.
The 36-year-old man named Aditya Singh was arrested last weekend.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Singh was charged with illegal intrusion into the airport restricted area, which was reported to be a felony, while theft was another misdemeanor.
Prosecutors quoted police on the 17th as saying that Singer flew from Los Angeles to Chicago O’Hare International Airport on October 19 last year.
Nearly three months later, one Saturday afternoon, Singh was stopped by two airport staff and asked to show his identity documents.
Singh admitted showing them an airport identity document, but it was actually the identity document of an airport operation manager who had lost it on October 26.
Singh found the identity document at the airport and was “sto not afraid to go home because of the coronavirus,” the report said.
Local inspection officials reportedly said that other passengers had also provided food to Singh.
The report also quoted a lawyer as saying that Singh has a master’s degree in hospitality management and has lost his job.
He had previously lived in Los Angeles with his roommate.
