A Filipino man has gone viral on social media after posting pictures showing how he slept for seven hours in a pool.
It all started during a family vacation when the man, Seth Gabriel Ricafort, decided to sleep in the pool because there was no space inside the room they rented at the King Leonard Island Resort in Bocaue, Bulacan province, Philippines. He also added that the room was too cold for him, Ricafort told Coconuts Manila
“We’re on a family outing and there was no space on the bed, so my drunk cousin put on his trunks and said ‘I will just sleep in the swimming pool,’” his cousin, Iris Vicencio, the netizen who made the post online said in a mix of English and Tagalog. “I thought it was just a joke, [but] f*ck he was serious.”
When she heard that, Vicencio thought that her cousin was just playing a joke on her or a prank, but when her sister went outside, she was shocked to find out that Ricafort was still sleeping in the pool with green inflatables wrapped around him.
However, it was important for Vicencio to remind everyone to never try this.
“It should go without saying that no one should do this too. We didn’t stop my cousin because he’s a really smart guy and always knows what he’s doing, plus he had his friends around him the whole time awake from 1AM – 5AM, he’s safe and alive,” she wrote in her follow up tweet.
While speaking to the publication, Ricafort said that he slept in the pool at around 11:45 p.m. and added, “[But] I woke up at 3am because there were noisy people playing volleyball in the pool, and then I slept again.”
“And then woke up at around 7am because they needed to clean the pool HAHAHA. So that was like a solid seven hours [of sleep].”
