A jetskier managed to breach security at JFK International Airport and walk undetected across two runways after swimming to shore from his stricken vehicle, it was reported Monday.
Daniel Casillo, 31, was forced to abandon his vehicle after it broke down while he raced a friend in Jamaica Bay, close to New York’s main air-transport hub, on Friday evening. According to the New York Post, Casillo then swam to land, climbed a perimeter fence and walked past JFK’s $100m network of motion sensors, closed-circuit video surveillance and other security measures.
Having walked across two runways and into a terminal building, Casillo approached a Delta Airlines employee, who alerted authorities. He has since been charged with criminal trespass.
