This should be solved using Segment Tree (my thoughts).

Create a list will the distance at current snapshot and update once a person sits on a bench with max distance.

For example:
List given: 0 0 x 0 0 0 x 0 0 0
x means person sitting on the bench
0 means vacant

So, the segment tree can contain values:
2 1 0 1 2 1 0 1 2 3
distance for each index.

But I need to figure out how segment tree will be updated.
