Stranded At Airport For Two Months

Rodrigo Ben-Azul has been at the Santiago airport in Chile for eight weeks trying to get a return flight to Spain.

He told newspaper PubliMetro that he arrived in the South American country in November to “resolve a dispute” with family members that lived there. But, after failing to work out the issue, he returned to the terminal and has spent the last eight weeks – including over Christmas and New Year – waiting for relatives in Spain to send him money for his return flight.

He told Chilean TV station Megavision: ‘I am trying to return to Spain. I’m waiting for them to send me money for the ticket’.

Airport workers have said he has a daily routine, involving pushing abandoned luggage trolleys back into their spaces so he can claim the money.

At night he finds a small corner where he sleeps, and during the day Ben-Azul spends his time looking for food in dustbins and cigarette ends which can still be smoked.
