The creepy part is that I heard this one from a friend that works for the
FAA. She received an offical Governmental Travel Warning about this.
Apparently its happened more than once and the victom wakes up in the tub
with an I.V. attatched and a note taped to his chest that reads, "DON"T
PANIC. Call 911."
