Young man caught posing as a senior citizen to fly to the U.S.

Lansing, MI (WILL) -- In the video you can see an old man sitting in a wheelchair with a snow-white beard and over sized glasses.

Problem is-- that's not an old man.

He's 32-years-old!

Jayesh Patel put on this disguise to fool people at New Delhi's airport.

He wanted to fly to New York and was hoping this fake-out would help him pass for the older gentleman on his passport.

However, folks at the airport figured it out pretty quickly.

Patel was detained and handed over to immigration authorities.
