Summary:This footage occurred in June 2017 in Bengaluru, India and shows the gruesome moment when a spider calmly crawls out of a woman's ear hours after it snuck in while she slept.The 49 year old woman identified as Lekshmi L, had fallen asleep in the afternoon on her veranda but when she awoke she had a nagging headache, slight discomfort in her right ear and an inexplicable tingling sensation. She dug her finger into her ear canal but she couldn’t remove the obstruction.
When the discomfort turned into a splitting headache, her husband rushed her to the Columbia Asia Hospital in Hebbal, India, where the doctor was shocked to see a live spider inside her ear. The doctors poured a liquid medicine in her ears and coaxed the spider out of her ears using torchlight. The entire process was filmed by doctors who were highly surprised to see the spider alive and crawling out of the ear canal.
It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence of a foreign object in the ear and it takes a simple procedure to remove it, however, when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear the patient's anxiety makes it difficult to continue the procedure.
The woman was terrified as she could feel movement of a creature inside her ear and felt acute earache followed by sharp pains.
Fortunately, the doctors have confirmed that no severe damage was caused to the woman’s ears.
Her ear swelled so much that it took three days for doctors to finally remove the bug. Doctors are still shocked how the creature managed to get inside because it’s rare to see a live spider moving inside someone’s ear canal.
