If there’s anything that gets us feeling weirded out, it’s creepy crawlies. And unfortunately for this man, he went through one of the grossest experiences ever. So gross we don’t think we could have handled it.
Blake Collins from Florida,U.S rushed to the Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare after waking up early in the morning to a roach burrowing into his ear!
“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,” he said.
As if he wasn’t already going through enough, the cockroach also laid an egg in his ear.
At the hospital, the doctor attending to Collins used a syringe to put lidocaine into his ear canal. Lidocaine acts as a numbing agent for tissue around a specific area. In this case, it also helped to kill the roach.
“I heard it die in my head,” said Collins. He added that the roach was going super fast, kicking and trying to dig its way out, gave a faint little squeal and a few minutes later, it stopped and died. The doctors managed to get the roach and egg out, which thankfully has yet to hatch. The egg is said to contain 40 baby roaches!
Mad props to Collins for braving through this horrendous ordeal! We might just have fainted over and over if it happened to us. ☹
