Inch-long cockroach crawls in a man's ear!

Sleepy? Better put your headphones on as even a cockroach can plan to visit your ear.

Woken by a sharp pain in right ear, an Australian man found an inch-long cockroach behind his ordeal that ended only in the hospital later.

Hendrik Helmer, a resident of Darwin - the capital city of the Northern Territory in Australia - had to go through a painful hospital visit after a large cockroach burrowed into his ear.

He tried to suck it out with a vacuum cleaner but failed, said a report by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

With the pain becoming unbearable, his roommate rushed him to hospital where a doctor put oil down the ear canal.

This forced the inch-long cockroach to crawl in deeper, before it eventually began to die. And doctors took it out.

According to doctors, they had never pulled an insect this large out of someone's ear.
