Doctors find cockroach in Indian woman's skull

An Indian woman went to the doctor after complaining of a "tingling, crawling sensation" in her nostril.

It turns out there was a cockroach living in her skull, close to her brain, and squirmed as doctors pulled it out through her nose.

Dr. M N Shankar, head ENT at Stanley Medical College Hospital in Chennai, India said:

“It was alive. And it didn’t seem to want to come out."

42-year-old Selvi said her eyes felt like they were burning when the roach moved inside of her.

Doctors concluded that the bug must have crawled up her nose and got stuck, unable to turn around.

It took 45 minutes to remove the disgusting creature.  At first doctors tried to suction it out, but after being unsuccessful they pulled it out with forceps.

It's actually a good thing that the roach was still alive when it was pulled out.  If if had died, it might have become infected and damaged her brain.

There is video of the procedure.  If you hate bugs, and/or are easily grossed out, you've been warned.

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, here's a video of a cockroach being pulled out of a woman's head:
