HOUSTON -- Passenger Tom Wagner fell fast asleep on his United Express flight on Dec. 6.

The only problem -- nobody woke him up when it landed.

“I looked up at the ceiling and the lights were out, and I looked down the aisle and the lights were out, and I was like 'Nobody's home,'” he said.

It would appear that dozens of  passengers on the flight from Louisiana to Texas, along with crew members, didn't notice the man sleeping.

Luckily, Wagner had a cell phone and called his girlfriend, who alerted the airline.

He was given a voucher and a free hotel stay by the airline.
