Plane passenger wakes up to nasty and painful surprise

GETTING sleep on a plane is hard enough as is. But imagine being woken by this.

A tourist got a very peculiar wake-up call on his flight from South Vietnam to North Vietnam, when he woke from his nap due a strange stinging sensation.

"I was on a plane from Hanoi to Saigon when I felt a stinging pain on my leg," passenger Christiano Ochoa said.

"I was asleep and it happened to wake me up."

When he opened his eyes, he saw a small hand coming through the gap between the chair in front and the window, yanking out the hairs on his thigh one-by-one.

"I look and see this kid pulling my leg hairs. I immediately started recording because the situation seemed so absurd," Mr Ochoa said.

Apparently, the young, curious Vietnamese boy sitting in the row in front of Mr Ochoa wasn't used to seeing so much hair on a leg. So he took it upon himself to investigate.

Mr Ochoa posted the hilarious video on YouTube, where it has already been viewed more than 80,000 times, at the time of writing.

God speed, little guy. We hope you got the answers you were looking for.
