I was wondering something similar: why is "wat is erin?" considered wrong? It's confusing... :(

For the use in Dutch of existential to be and to be describing a location, see this explanation: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5785064

In short: for someone or something located inside something else zitten is normally used.
