A woman is lucky to be alive after sleep walking in middle of the night before ending up in the sea, police in the United Kingdom said.
39-year-old Marie Lord of Somerset, walked over half a mile from her home until she entered the sea.
She was awakened by the strong taste of sea salt in her mouth and the cold of the waves crashing against her. Lord said that when she woke up, she realized that it was around 1:30 a.m.
During her journey to the sea, she walked on the streets and scaled a large set of steps on her own without the help of her husband.
A worker at a nearby hotel heard Lord screaming at the beach and came to her aid. Lord thanked 21-year-old Lee Searle, for calling the police and saving her life.
Lord said that the last time she sleep walked was when she was 13 years old.
