A 27-year-old man was recently rescued from a cliff crevice in China. On Oct. 23 it was reported that the young man somehow got himself in the tight spot -- all while he was sleeping. The man does not remember how he got trapped but he told authorities that he remembered sleep walking in the days before so it is presumed that he somehow walked into the mountainous area while he was asleep.
He was very fortunate to be found alive and rescued after two days without food and water. Firefighters used eight ladders to save the man who only suffered minor injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital and is said to be doing well. It is unknown if he will be taking any precautions to keep him from sleep walking and getting himself into dangerous predicaments in the future.
The sleepwalking man can be seen in the video above.
