If your job is to load baggage into airplanes, the cargo hold of jet is a poor location for a nap. An employee found this out the terrifying way when he woke up from a mid-shift slumber to find himself trapped in the cargo hold of Alaska Airlines Flight 448 on Monday.

He reacted to this nightmare situation in the correct manner--by banging and screaming. Passengers and crew members heard his cries and the flight made an emergency landing. The Los Angeles-bound flight departed Seattle at 2:39pm and landed right back in Seattle a mere 14 minutes later.

The sleepy agent has already been discharged from the hospital, and he even passed a drug test! Looks like he was just exhausted. Maybe he should sleep on the toilet during work like the rest of us. Everyone naps on the toilet, right? RIGHT?
