A woman in South Korea this week awoke from a nap to find the robotic device attached to her hair.
With their ability to navigate the floor of your home and clean the carpets without requiring manual intervention, robotic vacuum cleaners have become increasingly popular in recent years.
When a 52-year-old woman in South Korea lay down on the floor to take a nap this week however, a sleeping arrangement that is quite common in the country, the last thing she expected was to wake up to find one of the machines trying to vacuum up her own head.
The bizarre accident made headline news when the unsuspecting victim was unable to free herself from the clutches of the device and was forced to call the emergency services.
Fortunately firefighters and paramedics were eventually able to find a way to separate the machine from her head before it managed to cause any serious injuries.
