TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCMH) – A man in Florida said he had to go to the hospital after a cockroach got in his ear and laid an egg.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Blake Collins, 25, went to the hospital earlier this month after he awoke to hear a cockroach crawling in his ear.
“A roach was burrowing inside of my head,” Collins told the newspaper. “I could hear his legs inside me. It felt like someone was shoving a Q-tip all the way inside my head and there was nothing I could do to stop it.”
A doctor killed the cockroach using lidocaine and a syringe. He also found an egg in Collins’ ear after removing the insect.
