A Chinese man probably now thinks the idea of mailing himself to his girlfriend wasn’t the best idea after all.
Hu Seng, from southern China, placed himself in a large sized box, had it sealed shut and placed in the mail system to be delivered to his girlfriend where family and friends would be awaiting its arrival. The problem is that the box got lost in the mail for about three hours longer than expected.
When the box finally arrived, the girlfriend opened the box only to find Seng passed out inside. Paramedics were called and had to revive Seng who really didn’t understand exactly what he’d gotten himself into. “I didn’t realise it would take so long,” said Seng. “I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by shouting.”
