You have to be leery of the Internet connections you make these days. They may not always be as solid as the chat box window appears them to be.

A Ohio teen only identified as “Pratt” learned the hard way after he almost killed himself from grief after flying to China and being treated like a bugaboo.

Via theGrio:

“Pratt” turned up in Jiangshan after a 7,000-mile journey. The only problem? The girl didn’t want to see him.

Pratt repeatedly tried to call her, who told him to leave her alone and blocked his number.

After that rejection, Pratt reportedly fell into depression and lots of drinking.

He lost all his money and was found lying next to the Xu River, unconscious and suffering from hypothermia.

“He was unconscious and lying in a pool of his own vomit,” a Cheng Bei Police Station spokesperson was quoted on Qianjiang TV. “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.”

Although police managed to find the girl Pratt had come to see, she still did not want to see him despite his near-death experience.

The hotel manager at the hotel where Pratt was staying heard about his hard time and allowed him to stay there for free.

Pratt has since recovered and is, according to a police spokeman, on a plane to Ohio.

Good luck to “Pratt” telling the next girl he dates about this struggle-filled encounter.
