Changsha Central Hospital recently extracted a spider that had been living for five days inside a woman’s ear canal. Look at the eyes on that thing! Reports Huffington Post:
After much discussion it was decided to fill the woman’s ear with saline, in the hope the spider would come out of its own accord, the Xiaoxiang Morning News reported.
Thankfully the plan worked and Dr Liu Sheng was able to give the good news to the patient, who promptly burst into tears of gratitude.
I’ll be shuddering at random intervals all day now.
