"They say it got smart, a new order of intelligence. Then it saw all people as a threat, not just the ones on the other side. Decided our fate in a microsecond: extermination."

In one of the most bizarre news articles of the year, scratch that - EVER - a woman has been attacked by a robot vacuum while she slept at her own home!

The 52-year-old, South Korean woman called Yoon, awoke in agony at her home after her robot vacuum apparently mistook her hair for fluff. After it becoming apparent that she couldn't free herself, Yoon had no choice but to call the Changwon city fire department in desperation to come save her.

Poor Yoon.
Poor Yoon.

It took Four emergency workers half an hour to free poor Yoon, having to first open the device to alleviate the pressure from her scalp. Unfortunately, it was reported that Yoon suffered did have some injuries.

Dismantling the robot.

The skynet-esque attack comes following the recent surge in the technology during the last decade. US firm iRobot have sold more than 10 million units of its circular Roomba. The devices have sensors that usually allow them to avoid obstacles, unfortunately Yoon wasn't registered as one.

The fire department admitted "This case was quite special," stating "We had seen weird things, but this was a very weird call that we received."

Let's just hope the technology doesn't become self-aware at 02:14 am Eastern Time...
