A man almost died of suffocation after he wrapped himself in a box and mailed himself to his girlfriend as a surprise.

The Sun reported that Hu Seng, from southern China, nearly suffocated after mailing himself to his girlfriend’s office in a sealed box for her birthday.

His shocked girlfriend, Li Wang, reportedly unwrapped the box after a 3-hour delay to find her man unconscious.

A friend of Seng, waiting nearby, photographed the surprise.

After being revived by paramedics Seng said he didn’t realize the stunt would take so long.

“I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by shouting,” he said, according to The Sun.

Seng said the cardboard had been too thick for an air hole.
