HOUSTON -

A man flying from Louisiana to California found himself locked inside the plane after he awoke from an in-flight nap.

According to KTRK, Tom Wagner woke up inside the dark cabin of the United Express plane he was a passenger on this weekend. Somehow, while everyone else deplaned during a layover in Houston, no one noticed Wagner asleep at the back of the plane.

Wagner called his girlfriend, who in turn called the airline. An hour and a half later, workers came and got Wagner out of the locked plane.

The man missed his connecting flight to California. Though he did finally reach his destination, Wagner was given a hotel room and a $250 voucher from United Express.
