SOUTH KOREA -- A bizarre scene unfolded in South Korea when paramedics were called to rescue a woman whose hair was sucked up into her robot vacuum.

It seems the woman decided to take a nap on the floor while her robot vacuum did some cleaning.

Apparently, the machine mistook her hair for a dust ball and tried to suck it up.

The woman was jolted from her sleep and had to call 911 for help to get free.

Paramedics were able to successfully remove her hair from the nozzle. They say the woman suffered only minor injuries.
