American-born student, 21, is trapped in ghost town Wuhan after he failed to get on an evacuation flight to the US when the city shut down its transportation
- Nicholas Schneider, 21, desperately tried to catch the evacuation flight to US
- But the Wuhan University student was unable to travel to an airport 30 miles from Wuhan because most transportation was down
- Schneider, who holds dual US-German citizenship then turned to German embassy officials, who he said promised him a bus ride to the airport
- German embassy also promised him a seat of a flight to Germany on Saturday
“An embassy official told him he would have to get himself to the airport on the other side of Wuhan, 30 miles away, he said.
With most transportation down, he found no way to make the trip, and an embassy staff member told him that they would give his seat to someone else, Schneider said.
‘I couldn’t believe what I just heard. That’s not how you deal with a citizen in need … it seemed like she didn’t care,’ Schneider said.
That flight left Wuhan with 210 Americans aboard. It arrived in California on Wednesday…”
