A man on a jet ski was able to breach security at Kennedy Airport over the weekend when he became stranded in a New York bay and walked undetected through two runways and into a terminal.
The 31-year-old man walked passed a $100 million system that includes motion sensors and closed-circuit cameras and is meant to guard against terrorists at the airport, the New York Post reported.
He climbed an 8-foot perimeter fence and made his way to Terminal 3. A Delta Airlines worker who was approached by the man alerted authorities.
The man was charged with criminal trespass. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is investigating.
