Man posts himself to girlfriend as a prank
Almost dies when couriers lose delivery address for THREE HOURS

  • Sealed box was too thick for him to bore an air-hole in it
  • Courier service did not know there was a person inside
  • They said that even animals have to be transported in special containers

A fun-loving boyfriend decided to surprise his partner by posting her an unusual present - himself.

But the joke went horribly wrong when the delivery was delayed and he almost suffocated to death.

Hu Seng, from Chongqing city in southern China, made a friend tape him into a box that he had paid a courier firm to deliver to his girlfriend, Li Wang.

Another friend was waiting at his girlfriend's office to film the surprise when he jumped out.

In a horrifying twist of fate, however, the unsuspecting couriers mixed up the address and instead of 30 minutes in the sealed box, Mr Seng was trapped inside for nearly three hours.

the box had very little air inside and was too thick for Mr Seng to make a hole in it.

By the time the package had arrived at his girlfriend's office - where a friend was waiting to record her surprise on camera - Mr Seng had passed out and had to be revived by paramedics.

'I didn't realise it would take so long,' admitted Mr 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.'

A spokesman for the courier firm said: 'If he'd told us what he was doing at the start we would not have taken the parcel.

'Even when we accept animals they have to go in special containers so they can breathe.'

Oh dear. Glad he's okay but what a twist that they mixed up the addresses.
