Man in Vietnam hasn’t slept in 33 years.
Do you believe it or not, 64-year old Thai Ngoc had a fever in 1973, and after that he never went to sleep again, not even for a quick nap. He even had a medical examination, but doctors gave him a clean bill of health.
As songbirds awaken the early risers at dawn on the farm, one resident is already up; in fact, he never slept – not once in the past 33 years.
You’d think going without sleep for that long may have its drawbacks, but not for the man in central Quang Nam province who has never been ill after decades of insomnia.
His inability to sleep has not only made him famous, but also represents a “miraculous” phenomenon worthy of scientific study.
Sixty-four-year-old Thai Ngoc, known as Hai Ngoc, said he could not sleep at night after getting a fever in 1973, and has counted infinite numbers of sheep during more than 11,700 consecutive sleepless nights.
