Awkward flight as sleeping stranger flops over passenger

July 26, 2013 Aviation, Headline News No Comments Email Email

What happens on a flight when the stranger next to you falls asleep so deeply they slump over onto your lap?

One answer: make a video of it.

That’s what air passenger Steve Cullum did. He then put the brief video on YouTube.

Cullum said he was minding his own business on a flight home in the US, “when I ended up in an extremely awkward situation.

“This lady was totally out of it. As soon as she sat down, she started falling asleep, and it only got worse as the flight continued. I tried lifting her up, shaking her, and startling her, but it seemed like nothing was going to work.

“So, I thought it would be fun to get some of it on video to share with family and friends.”

Cullum swears that none of it is staged and the three passengers sitting alongside each other had never met before.

He says he couldn’t notify a flight attendant because they were all seated, due to turbulence.

“They told us not to use our call buttons unless it was a medical emergency.”
