3 Unbelievable Sleep Walking Stories

Lee Hadwin - a nurse with no interest or known ability in art – is baffled by his nocturnal talent in creating masterpieces while sleep walking, with no recollection of drawing them the next day.

By day a nurse, by night a talented artist

Sleep walking 1Lee Hadwin - a nurse with no interest or known ability in art – is baffled by his nocturnal talent in creating masterpieces while sleep walking, with no recollection of drawing them the next day.

After leaving doodles on walls, newspapers and anything else he could find while sleeping, he began leaving artists’ materials scattered about the house, so that his walls could remain un-doodled and so he could clearly see the artwork he was creating. Dubbed ‘Kipasso’, major galleries have been asking for samples of his work which they hope to sell on their artistic merit and novelty value.


Cooking up a dreamy feast

Sleep walking 2

Robert Wood, a chef from Glenrothes in Fife, gets up four or five times a week while asleep to cook everything from omelettes to fry-ups.

Having been a sleep walker for over 40 years; he is used to his nightly wanders but has increasingly become worried, together with wife Eleanor, about injuring himself in the kitchen. With an ulcer in his intestine - which means he can only eat very little - Mr Wood believes his sleep cooking is due to hunger pangs.

This strange activity has left him and his wife having very little sleep every night, due to fear that he will head for the kitchen to use the stove and oven for whatever he fancies eating.


Walking on air

Sleep walking 3In May 2009, a teenage girl stepped out of her second floor bedroom window while sleeping and plunged 25ft to the ground.

Maria Ward landed feet first on a patch of grass leaving 6 inch deep foot prints before collapsing. While semi-conscious she was able to call for help and was taken to hospital by her parents. To the amazement of doctors, the 18-year-old suffered no injuries from the fall - not even a bruise - but did not fully wake up until the following day.
