Mystery or In-n-Out burger has been solved! Teen reveals that she has dropped food on the NYC street
The mystery of an In-N-Out citizen who mysteriously appeared on Queens Street this weekend, despite the fact that the nearest restaurant is more than 1500 km away, has finally been solved.
Lincoln Boehm, 31, posted a photo of the perfectly packed & # 39; Double Double & # 39; citizen after he discovered this on Saturday at the Jamaica Long Island Rail Road station.
Now the New Yorker has revealed that the burger belonged to Helen Vivas, 16, who had dropped him while driving to the bus after a flight with red eyes.
Helen goes to the Veritas Academy in Vlissingen and told Boehm that she had picked up the hamburger in Encinitas, California on July 19 before flying back 2,429 miles to New York.
She explained the perfect state of the hamburger and revealed that she had told the restaurant that she was about to board a flight and wanted to know how to save her food.
The & # 39; Double Double & # 39; burger was found on a street in Queens at the weekend, about 1500 km from the nearest In-N-Out restaurant
So she ordered two double doubles without sauce, and two single cheeseburgers, with the vegetables packed in separate bags.
On the plane she ate one of the double doubles – and kept the bag with the other sandwiches on her lap for the entire flight.
Helen landed at JFK airport on Saturday at 5.27 a.m. and took the AirTrain to Jamaica station to take the Q44 bus home.
It was here that she saw the bus leave and forced her to fetch it.
As she did, the bottom bag burst open, causing the food to fly.
Helen could catch two of the three hamburgers before they hit the ground, but she had to leave a double-double.
The closest restaurant to In-N-Out is located in Dallas, Texas, 1,573 miles (shown on the map) from where it was found in Queens by Boehm
Boehm found the hamburger about an hour later.
To prove that the burger belonged to her, Helen Boehm sent screenshots of her Instagram story of the In-N-Out restaurant where she was going, her receipt for the meal, and her flight information.
In a first-person essay about Vice, Boehm said: & # 39; Helen was sincere and I knew from the jump that this person could have the answers I've been looking for in the last four days. & # 39;
Boehm, a lifelong In-N-Out fan, said he and his wife went to McDonald's when they saw the perfectly preserved hamburger.
He posted about the hamburger on his Instagram account and the story was widely shared, with thousands of comments on the mystery.

Boehm received dozens of messages from fans with theories about the matter and is now planning to meet Helen.
He added: & # 39; My wife and I have invited Helen and her family for a barbecue at our apartment.
& # 39; We will probably get hot dogs and chicken. & # 39;
The closest restaurant to In-N-Out is in Dallas, Texas – nearly 1,600 miles from where the hamburger is found.
The famous chain was founded in California in Baldwin Park, California in 1948 and has been expanded with more than 300 locations on the west coast.
But the restaurant has so far only spread to Texas.
Boehm said he had not touched or eaten the hamburger, but instead took a photo and posted it on Instagram.
The discovery even caught the attention of Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who quoted Boehm's words in a tweet and joked: & # 39; It really shook me to the core. & # 39;
