KAMPEN (BNO NEWS) — A 42-year-old man had one hell of a wake-up call on Sunday when he fell out of a window as he was sleepwalking, police in the Netherlands said.

The accident happened early Sunday morning at a home in Kampen, a city in the eastern Netherlands. Local police said he fell through an open window as he was sleepwalking in the home.

He fell around 4 meters (13 feet) and suffered a broken hip as a result of the fall, which undoubtedly woke him.

The man, whose identity was not released, was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
