39- years -old Marie Lord sleepwalked almost a kilometre from her home in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England, and was only woken by the taste of sea salt in her mouth.
Marie who woke around 1.30 a.m, let herself out of the house, walked the streets down to the sea.
When she woke to find herself in the sea, a night porter, Lee Searle working at a hotel near the beach heard her cries and called 999.
Marie thanked Lee for his actions, which she says saved her life.
“Sometimes, depending on the wind, we can hear the sea from our house,” she said.
“I remember thinking ‘gosh, it’s ever so clear tonight, it’s like I’m there’ – but obviously I was.”
