He was trying to hide from COVID... inside one of the world’s busiest airports?

A California man who said he was afraid of contracting coronavirus while flying decided to live at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, where he remained undetected for three months before being arrested over the weekend, authorities said.

In a stunning case that resembles the plot of Tom Hanks’ 2004 movie “The Terminal,” 36-year-old Aditya Singh managed to hide in a secured area of the airport and survive by getting food from passengers, prosecutors told an incredulous judge on Sunday, The Chicago Tribune reported.

“So if I understand you correctly,” Cook County Judge Susana Ortiz said, “you’re telling me that an unauthorized, nonemployee individual was allegedly living within a secure part of the O’Hare airport terminal from Oct. 19, 2020, to Jan. 16, 2021, and was not detected? I want to understand you correctly.”
