"Sleepwalking Idaho woman wakes up in Snake River twice..."

She'll be asleep, dreaming of drowning and then wake up to find herself in the river.

Is it just any river or just the Snake River? If it's the latter then there could be some Freudian angle here . . .

The Snake River is a really big, long river. It's simple probability.

My guess? A publicity stunt for a re-make of this movie with a female lead this time: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102494/

Republican war on women continues. Every woman should have the right to sleepwalk into the Snake River at no cost to her if she chooses.

Lifevest aquisition for sleeping. use one on my solo sails all the time. Beats drowning if a little uncomfortable..

Each time she realized she forgot the wedding dress.

Third time is a charm?

It's hard to believe that the shock of walking into cold water wouldn't wake a sleepwalker. And yet it happened.

There are, of course, stories of people driving, going to work, and other things while sleepwalking one would imagine would waken them.

Fascinating subject.

Probably Evil Knievel has her under mind control and she follows him into the river.

Eeek. As a sleepwalker, this is one of my greatest fears. I've woken up outside before, and once camping woke up standing in a stream.

Easy to think about a situation where even if I did wake up, it wouldn't be in time to save myself.

A simpler explanation than a woman walking into the chilly water of the Snake River without waking up is that she is bullshitting everyone. This story doesn't pass the sniff test.

She's cute- does she sleep in the nude?

This article reminds me of the scene in Step brothers where both John C. Reilly and Will Ferrel are both sleep walking in their parents room and one then lugs in the christmas tree, and the other starts throwing the presents. Very funny movie.

At any rate, I've never actually sleep walked. But I have on more than one occasion had full phone conversations while sleeping that i didn't remember having when I woke up, so I guess it's possible.

I once got up and peed in my locker while asleep; but that was after a number of hits on the black bottle in Officer Training School.
