California man lived in Chicago airport for 3 months, ‘too scared of COVID’ to fly home

(The AEGIS Alliance) – CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – Many people were stunned when prosecutors stated that a man lived inside O’Hare International Airport for a period of three months without being detected.

Aditya Singh is facing felony and misdemeanor charges. The 36-year-old man is being charged with criminal trespass to a restricted area of an airport and theft. Singh stated that he was too afraid to fly back to his home in California. He said he did not want to expose himself to COVID-19.

According to The Chicago Tribune, Singh flew from Los Angeles to O’Hare International Airport on October 19. His alleged fear of the virus forced him to live in the airport’s security zone.

Prosecutors stated that two United Airlines employees approached Singh this past weekend, and asked to see his credentials. Singh allegedly flashed a badge. However, the badge was reported missing by an operations manager. This prompted the employees to call 911, and Singh was arrested at 11:10 a.m. in Terminal 2 on Saturday.

The Tribune reported that Singh was “scared to go home due to COVID.” Kathleen Hagerty, Illinois Assistant State’s Attorney, told the presiding judge that Singh was getting food from other passengers.

Cook County Judge Susana Ortiz made her ruling on Sunday. If Singh paid $1,000, he could be released. However, he would be banned from the airport. On Monday morning, officials stated that Singh was still in custody at the Cook County Jail.
