A Vietnamese man who claims he hasn’t slept since 1962 has gone viral as his video emerged online.
The man named Thai Ngoc says he has been awake for as long as 61 years without closing his eyes to rest.In the video, the man was seen puffing from a stick of cigarette and his eyes were wide open even when he was lying down.
People on Instagram are however saying the man would have died if he hasn’t slept for that long. Others say the human body cannot withstand that number of years without sleep.
According to Healthline, a health information website, one could start to hallucinate without sleep for a long time
“The longest recorded time without sleep is approximately 264 hours, or just over 11 consecutive days. Although it’s unclear exactly how long humans can survive without sleep, it isn’t long before the effects of sleep deprivation start to show.”

Reactions from Instagram users @shamisok said “Bro just be vibing 24 hours a day.” @livefreemayra reacted: “If he had zero sleep, he would die.
Not possible. Without him giving himself credit or realizing , he does slew even if it’s 30 min.
Our bodies cannot function without sleep for years.”
“He probably is an engineering student.”
