A New Zealand actor experienced a rough awakening when he woke up and discovered that a rat had been sucking his face and fingers while he was sleeping.

The Auckland resident told the NZ Herald he had fallen asleep after taking a sleeping pill, but woke up hours later and blood was pouring from his mouth.
Ross Campbell, 63, said he thought he had been “in a nightmare” two months ago when he woke up and discovered that a rat had nibbled his face and fingers
The inhabitant of Auckland, who appeared in Hercules (photo), remembered the horrible moment that he woke up from his mouth one night around three o’clock in the morning.
Mr. Campbell said he had felt a sharp pain as well as the feeling of “fluid flowing over my face.”
“So I went to look in the mirror and looked like Dracula,” he said of the incident that occurred two months ago.
“Friend, from the top of my lip to the bottom, it bit me. It must have caught my breath or something. ”
Mr. Campbell, who appeared in both Hercules and Pit Stop commercials, did not realize what was happening to him at the time, so he cleaned himself up and went back to sleep.
Minutes later he caught the rodent in the act, this time nibbling his thumb.
Mr. Campbell said he went to his couch after turning his bed to discover “damn rats **.”
The terrifying incident was enough to send him to the hospital, where he received a tetanus photo.
The actor said he believes rats had infiltrated his apartment after the development of the Newmarket campus across the street from the University of Auckland.
Mr. Campbell admitted that the incident had marked him so that he now sleeps on a bed in his living room.
