A video of a spider crawling out of a woman’s ear in Bengaluru has gone viral on YouTube.

The 49 year old woman identified as Lekshmi L had fallen asleep in her veranda at noon when she woke up with a “nagging headache and a tingling sensation in her right ear.” The pain and headache became unbearable when she dug her fingers into her ear canal in order to get rid of the irritating sensation. When nothing worked she was rushed to the Colombia Asia Hospital in Hebbal, Bengaluru.

The doctors poured a liquid medicine in her ears and coaxed the spider out of her ears using torchlight. The entire process was filmed by doctors who were highly surprised to see the spider alive and crawling out of her ear canal. According to a Daily Mail report, Dr Santosh Shivaswamy who was part of the medical procedure said “It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence a foreign object in the ear and it takes a simple procedure to remove the object, however when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear, the patient’s anxiety makes it difficult to continue the procedure.” It was a rare experience for the doctors to witness a live spider moving inside the human ear.

Fortunately, the doctors have confirmed that no severe damage was caused to the woman’s ears.
