London, Nov 06 (ANI): A young Asian man, who boarded a flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver disguised as an elderly white male, was caught after his young-looking hands gave him away.
According to Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA), the man wore a silicone mask covering his head and neck in what they called an "unbelievable case of concealment".
"The passenger was seen at the start of the flight as an elderly Caucasian male who appeared to have young-looking hands," the BBC quoted the CBSA bulletin as saying.
"The subject attended the washroom and emerged an Asian looking male that appeared to be in his early twenties," it added.
The document also stated that the man had a bag with a disguise kit, which consisted of a silicone type head and neck mask of an elderly Caucasian male, a brown leather cap, glasses and a thin brown cardigan.
"We can confirm that officials from the CBSA met a passenger arriving off AC018 Hong Kong to Vancouver on October 29 and the matter is still under investigation," Air Canada spokesperson Angela said.
The young man is reportedly seeking refugee status in Canada. (ANI)
