An 18-year-old kid from Ohio thought he’d found the love of his life online. The only problem, as he saw it, was that she lived over 7,000 away. It turns out there were two problems — the distance and that she didn’t feel the same way.
That didn’t stop him from flying across the world to tell her. Bad move.
Identified by only his surname, Pratt, the 18-year-old flew from Ohio to Jiangshan, a city in Zhejiang province, China, after reportedly falling in love with a young Chinese woman he met online. However, the infatuation was not mutual.
After being rejected by his online love, Pratt got super drunk and almost drown.
“He was unconscious and lying in a pool of his own vomit. It looks as if he might have fallen in the water at some stage as his clothes and shoes were soaked. To be honest, he was so inebriated, he could easily have drowned. It was only a short distance to the water,” a Cheng Bei Police Station representative said, according to the Daily Mail.
The teen was taken to a hospital, where he regained consciousness, only to find out that he had also lost all his money. The manager of the hotel where he was staying felt sorry for the teen and allowed him to remain in the room for free.
How did he know he was in love? He told police he fell in love “because of her perfect English and amazing photographs.” And those are two things that no woman in Ohio could ever hope to have.
