Alexander Cirk ended up in a Chinese hospital after spending ten days in an airport waiting for a woman he met on the Internet. Cirk came to the airport hoping to meet a 26-year-old named Zhang. After waiting eight days, he told a local broadcaster than he would not leave until his “girlfriend” arrived. After ten days with nothing to eat except instant noodles and soft drinks, Cirk collapsed and officials took him to a hospital for treatment. At that point, he said he was still determined to meet the mystery woman. The broadcaster located a woman who claimed to be Zhang and she said she was not able to met Cirk due to recent cosmetic surgery. Though Cirk tried hard to met her, he eventually returned home without setting eyes on Zhang.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
