A VIDEO footage of a taxi passenger who could not wake up from his sleep on reaching his destination has gone viral on social media.
The incident is said to have happened in Taman Sri Pulai in Johor.
The taxi driver couldn’t wake his passenger up despite shouting and shaking him. In the end, he called the police to awake the passenger.
The post on Facebook drew many funny comments. Some commenters with medical knowledge said the passenger could be suffering from narcolepsy, a neurological disorder that affects the control of sleep and wakefulness.
According to Wikipedia, people with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the daytime.
It couldn’t be ascertained if the video was staged.
