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.

Who knows what it was trying to do to her in her sleep. Very devious.

If she hadn't been sleeping on the floor the thing wouldn't have attacked her. I hope she learns her lesson about sleeping on the floor.

My puppy Ringo is pretty much convinced that the vacuum cleaner is some sort of 'evil alien'. One of those roomba things would probably be seen as being a toy though...he'd rip it to shreds in no time.

I hope she learns her lesson about sleeping on the floor. quoting only you but directed at some other people as well: what an ignorant comment! most people in most parts of the world sleep on the floor! including me! am i perhaps an underdeveloped ape for not having the sense to convert to your western-culture-only-culture culture and sleep in a bed like decent people or what?

Holy sensationalized headlines, Batman! That should have read Roomba sucks up sleeping woman's hair. And derp. If you have a Roomba vacuuming your floor, it's kind of common sense not to lay down and let it run over your hair. She probably doesn't want her name released because everyone is gonna think she's an idiot.
