ODD SPOT

The Western Star - - Family Life -

A MUM in China woke in the night to find her son, 2, re­peat­edly hit­ting him­self on the side of the head. Look­ing in his ear, she could see an in­sect’s legs but was un­able to re­move it. A visit to hos­pi­tal re­vealed the legs she saw be­longed to a cock­roach. ENT spe­cial­ist Chou Shuyao, from South­ern Med­i­cal Univer­sity Shen­zhen Heng­sheng Hos­pi­tal, found it in­side the boy’s left ear canal, crawl­ing on his eardrum. The 6mm in­sect was still alive and was re­moved with tweez­ers.
