Extreme Sleepwalking

Astonished firefighters who thought they were dealing with a suicidal teenager after a girl was spotted 130ft above ground found she was fast asleep MYSTERY surrounds the ordeal of a schoolgirl who went to bed and fell asleep, only to find herself on the arm of a crane 40m (130ft) above the ground when she awoke. Firefighters rescued the 15-year-old girl after an astonished passer-by dialled 999. The onlooker had spotted her curled up asleep on top of a concrete counter-weight on a narrow metal beam in the early hours.

M sleepwalks every once in a while. I hope her antics never get this bad, though. The doctor quoted in the piece mentions sleepwalkers driving cars, riding on horses and… ye gods, attempting to fly a helicopter!
