A "severely diabetic" Dutch man named Alexander Pieter Cirk, age 41, spent 10 days languishing within a Chinese airport waiting for a 26-year-old woman he met online to meet him. Cirk did not leave the airport, sleeping there 10 nights in a row.

The lady, identified only as Zhang, has been quoted as saying she didn't expect Cirk to make the trip. As he waited for her, she was apparently recovering from plastic surgery in Zhengzhou some 500 miles away.
