FedEx Employee Falls Asleep, Is Shipped With Packages to Texas


A FedEx Express hub worker fell asleep in Tennessee and woke up in Texas, Fox News reports.┬áThe shipping company’s ground crew member, who was not identified, was loading cargo on to an aircraft at a Memphis airport Friday when he nodded off around 4 a.m., FOX34 reported.

The man woke up mid-flight and tried to alert the pilots by knocking on the cabin door. But the pilots wouldn’t open up and communicated with the man via telephone. He was told to sit in a jump seat until the plane landed, Lubbock International Airport Executive Director Kelly Campbell said.

Fox News reports that when the flight landed around 5:30 a.m., Lubbock police, the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration were notified of the accidental stowaway. He was questioned at the airport.

Campbell called the Friday morning incident “very unusual.”




  1. This is breaking news? Are you at Matzav trying to compete with the Enquirer?? Who cares less if a dopey worker at FedEx falls asleep and is shipped with the packages? Who cares less about a monkey on a telephone wire in Japan? Can’t you print some normal news and not all these shtuyot? Pretty soon you will be renamed, Vos Iz Der Grester Shtus Far Di Tag.

    • Thank you. I couldn’t agree more. We used to be able to count on Matzav as the place to go to for “kosher” news presented in a bakavodike manner. Now, unfortunately, all we’re getting is tabloid type silliness and hock, not to mention the recent addition of pictures of women.
      What happened to you, Matzav? You certainly ain’t what you used to be. And that’s sad.

  2. I think you both need to take a chill pill, and as far as these comedy stories appear here, just keep it up they are very entertaining and have the biggest hatzlocha
