A man who had a blocked ear he believed was due to water was left horrified after finding out it was a cockroach hiding inside it.
Zane Wedding, from Auckland, New Zealand, woke up with a strange sensation after he went swimming the day before.
He decided to go to the hospital as he could feel movement in his ear, even when sitting still.
Zane was originally prescribed antibiotics and was instructed to blow a hairdryer near his ear in an attempt to dry out the area.
However, the sensation would not go away after two nights of little sleep so he decided to see a specialist at an ear clinic.
