Passenger sleeps on airport baggage carousel (video)

Russian tourist curls up on baggage reclaim machine at Domodedovo Airport

An air passenger was so tired after his flight that he curled up on the airport baggage carousel and took a nap as other travellers collected their luggage.

The man was filmed sleeping on the baggage reclaim machine in the foetal position at Domodedovo Airport in Russia, the Daily Mail reports.

While a couple of passengers are seen filming the unusual sight, incredibly most are more concerned about collecting their belongings from the conveyor belt.

It's not the first time a passenger has fallen asleep on the conveyor. In 2012, a Norwegian tourist fell asleep on a Rome airport baggage belt and travelled through a secure area before being discovered by officials on an X-ray scanner.

The unnamed 36-year-old arrived at Rome's Fiumicino airport to board a flight back to Oslo.

But, when he arrived at the check-in desk, he found it empty, and decided to jump over the counter for a snooze on the baggage belt.

He travelled 160ft in 15 minutes through the secure baggage area in Terminal 3 before being spotted curled up in a ball on the X-ray screens.

He was asleep the entire time, and airport police even had trouble waking him up.

An officer with Fiumicino airport police told the Telegraph: "There's usually an episode like this once a year and we are alert.

"In this case we were notified we sounded the alarm immediately and we took action."

Police took the man to a nearby hospital before reporting him prosecutors at Civitavecchia for causing alarm at the airport.
