British Woman Sleepwalks Half a Mile into the Ocean

A 39-year-old British woman sleepwalked straight into the sea — and only woke up when she swallowed a mouthful of seawater. Marie Lord was fast asleep when she left her home in Weston-super-Mare, England, at around 1:30 a.m. She walked for more than half a mile to the beach before walking down a set of steep concrete steps. Marie Lord was then shocked when she suddenly regained consciousness — and found herself in the freezing cold water. She walked out of the surf — and her disoriented cries for help were luckily heard by a nearby hotel employee. Lee Searle ran down to grab the clearly confused Lord, bundled her up in blankets and brought her into the building. The 21-year-old then calmly called emergency services and Lord was taken to the nearby Weston General Hospital. Lord was treated for the onset of hypothermia before returning home.
