A Chinese woman with an itchy ear had just learned that the source of her discomfort was an unwelcome visitor – a centipede that had crawled into her ear canal.
According to reports, while the creature refused to venture out on its own, the unnamed woman went to the emergency room in Yangzhou Hospital in Jiangsu, an eastern coastal province of China, in order to have the creepy crawly extracted.
As you’ll notice in the clip below, the creature briefly emerges from the woman’s ear to take a look at all the commotion before disappearing back into its warm and cozy home. The doctor first killed the creature with a saline solution before pulling it out with a pair of tweezers and gently tries to extract the creature from the woman’s ear.
Although the woman suffered minor injuries to her ear, removing the creepy centipede has become a major relief.
