It is reminiscent of a film: In the USA during the Corona era, a man lived at the airport in Chicago for three months - probably out of fear.

  • A man in the

    USA

    stayed in the security area of ​​an

    airport

    for a good three months

    .

  • He

    did not leave

    the

    airport for

    fear of contracting

    Corona

    *

    after flying home

    .

  • Now the man from the

    USA

    threatens

    legal consequences.

Chicago - It is a curious story from the

USA

that - even if it is strongly reminiscent of Steven Spielberg's film "The Terminal" from 2004 - actually happened that way.

Similar to Tom Hanks, who made himself

comfortable

at the

airport

as Viktor Navorski in the film

, a man has now nested

for three months

out of fear of

Corona

undetected at the airport in

Chicago

, Illinois.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, the man landed

in

Chicago

on October 19, 2020 with a plane from

Los Angeles

and subsequently stayed undetected in the security area of ​​the

airport

for a

full three months

.

It was only three months later that

United Airways

employees became

aware of the man and asked him to identify himself.

Man lives for three months in the security area at one of the largest airports in the world

The man then pulled out an airport ID from an employee who had reported the ID as missing at the end of October 2020.

The

police

in

Chicago

arrested the 36-year-olds.

In custody, he finally admitted to the responsible officers that he had found the ID and had been

living

in the security area of

Chicago O'Hare

, one of the ten largest and busiest

airports in

the world, for

some time

.

According to his own statement out of fear of

being infected

with

Corona

after continuing his journey

. *

Initially, the man with the ID had access to the terminals and thus to all buildings, shops and groceries at the

airport

in

Chicago

.

After the ID card was reported missing and then blocked, the 26-year-old, who had lived in Orange in the greater

Los Angeles

area since 2019

, was only in the security area.

Other passengers provided him with food and drinks during this time.

Three months at Chicago Airport: Police in the USA take the man into custody for the time being

As the British newspaper "The Guardian" reports, the man was first arrested by the

police

in

Chicago

for breaking into the security area of ​​the

airport

and stealing in a minor case.

In the meantime, however, a deposit of $ 1,000 is said to have been deposited.

Nevertheless, the 36-year-old is strictly prohibited from entering O'Hare Airport.

The investigation continues for the time being.

It is still unclear what the consequences are.

The incident is also being thoroughly

investigated

by the

Chicago

Aviation Safety

Authority.

"There is no higher priority than

airport

security,

" the Chicago Tribune quoted a spokesman for the Chicago Department of Aviation as saying.

No threat to airport security: the Chicago court “shocked” over the period

The man from Orange in the

Los Angeles area

himself is said to have a master's degree from Oklahoma State University and is currently unemployed.

Due to an expiring visa, he was probably on the way to

India

, where, according to the Chicago Tribune, his mother lives.

However, it is unclear whether the 36-year-old even had a plane ticket.

The

Chicago

daily newspaper also reported

that the responsible court was "shocked" by the length of the stay in the airport's security area.

Nevertheless: There was no danger for the

airport

or the passengers.

The

Los Angeles man

had no previous convictions and was

unknown

to the

US

police

.
