    [​IMG] Changwon Fire Service Headquarters Two South Korean paramedics had to save a woman from her robot vacuum after it sucked up her hair.
    Robot vacuums are supposed to suck up hair on the floor — but not when it's still attached to a head.

    South Korean paramedics saved a housewife from her robot vacuum after it attacked her hair while she napped on the floor.

    It took two rescuers to free the 52-year-old's locks from the domestic device, Korea Bizwire reported.

    The unidentified woman turned on the vacuum before she laid down on the floor to rest. The device inched toward her as she slept, picking up dust and debris — and then it sucked up her hair, too.

    She woke up with her hair still tangled in the roving gadget and called emergency response when she couldn't free herself.

    The EMTs were able to work the woman's tangles from the vacuum. Aside from some pulled hair, she was not injured.

    Robot vacuums are popular around the world: the U.S.'s Roomba has sold 10 million since it debuted in 2002, The Guardian reported. Most models come with sensors to help them avoid bumping into furniture, stairs and other obstacles.

    Cuddly is preferable to menacing.

    She's a moron to run a roomba and nap on the floor. Darwinism failed this time.

    She must have just finished her radio show and was so exhausted she took a nap on the floor.
    I invented that Robin.
