Washington, August 10 : A Chinese woman was shocked to find that a ‘stocky’ spider, was residing in her ear canal for several days.
The doctors at China''s Changsha Central Hospital discovered that the itching in her ear was caused by the arachnid that had crawled inside five days earlier while she slept.
At the hospital, the sickening pictures of the patient''s ear canal revealed a stocky, hairy, four-eyed arachnid peering out at the camera.
According to local news sources, the medics, who were concerned that disturbing the spider would cause it to “instinctively drill its barbs deeper, scratching the ear canal” were able to remove the creature by pouring saline solution into the ear canal and flushing it out, Fox News reported.
Patient, who was identified only as "Ms. Lee," reportedly "almost started crying." as the spider''s outstretched foot emerged from her ear. (ANI)
