Wang Keding and his wife were waiting in the ticket hall of the Hefei Railway Station on January 19, 2013, hoping that tickets would be available the next day. Wang, a 39-year old migrant worker from rural Sichuan Province, doesn't know how to use the internet so was unable to book his tickets online. Unsurprisingly, tickets sold out quickly and he and his wife have had no choice but to head back to the railway station every night after work to try again. This was their seventh straight night waiting in the ticket hall.

The officer then escorted him to the gate and asked an attendant to watch after him. The kind gesture brought the elderly man to his knees and, to express his thanks to the officer, he offered to give him several of the local products he was carrying.

Li told the reporter: "I've already been in line for five days and nights straight, and I still haven't been able to get a ticket. Can you help me?" According to his story, Li's 80-year-old mother had called him up a few days ago and asked when he was coming home. After he explained to her that he'd been waiting in line for several days with no luck so far and that he might not make it home, she starting sobbing uncontrollably on the phone.
