Thai Ngoc is a farmer and a resident of Que Trung in Vietnam. He and his wife have six children and a small animal farm that they live off. But this is not what Thai Ngoc gained world popularity for. The 71-year-old man claimed he had never had a single night of sleep after suffering a severe fever back in 1973.
Ngoc is suffering from insomnia which disabled his ability to sleep for over 40 years.
His wife said that even hard liquor couldn’t put him to sleep.
Numerous medical examinations which proved Thai was in perfectly good health left the doctors baffled as it was medically impossible considering his severe chronic insomnia.
The extremely sleep deprived man is currently living with his family in his 5 acre farm and keeps himself busy all day by attending the needs of the farm animals. He even used the time he was awake during nights to dig two relatively big lakelets so he can rear fish in them.
