AAHHH! Can you imagine how horrible it must feel to have a moth fluttering about in your EAR??
The sound itself would drive anyone crazy.
Which is what happened to a kid in Colorado who had to get a moth removed with tweezers by a doctor.
It all started when Wade Scholte says a moth crawled into his ear while he was sleeping. He woke up screaming and crying. He said:
I had a moment of panicking. I was in pain. It was hurting so much. Every time it moved it hit my ear drum.
After convincing his mom that he actually had a moth in his ear, she drove him to the ER where a doctor attempted to drown the winged insect. When that failed, tweezers were used to get the little bug out.
Blech! Yucky and terrifying all at the same time!
We feel for you, Wade. So glad you were able to get the moth out before it did any major damage!
