You may not find cockroaches just inside cupboards, kitchen sinks, or drainage pipes. A man in China woke up with sharp pain inside his ear, only to find a family of cockroaches living inside his ear canal.
24-year-old Mr Lv, reportedly woke up at night because of a sharp nagging pain in his right ear. He asked his family members to shine a light in his ear to see what was causing it. According to Fox News, a large cockroach was found inside the ear.
When he went to the Sanhe Hospital in Huizhou, the doctor found “more than 10 cockroach babies inside” his ear.
“He said his ear hurt a lot, like something was scratching or crawling inside. It caused a lot of discomfort,” said Dr Zhong Yijin, according to 7 News. “I discovered more than 10 cockroach babies inside. They were already running around,” Dr Yijin said.
The roaches were removed with the help of a tweezer. It is not clear how long they had been living there.
Dr Yijin told local media that Mr Lv had a habit of leaving unfinished packets of food near his bed, which probably attracted insects and cockroaches.
In a similar case reported earlier, a cockroach had been living in the ear of a woman in Florida for nine days.
