Man goes to hospital after cockroach lays egg in his ear

U.S. & World

TALLAHASSEE, FL (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.
