This is a total nightmare: A cockroach crawled inside a Florida woman’s ear while she was sleeping. It took nine days and three doctors to get the insect out.
Katie Holley, who wrote about her horrifying experience in a SELF column, said about a month ago, she woke up in the middle of the night “startled,” feeling like “someone placed a chip of ice” in her left earhole. It wasn’t ice.
She inserted a cotton swab in her ear and “felt something move,” she writes. When she pulled the swab out, two brown LEGS were stuck to the tip.
