Watch: Doctor pulls live cockroach from man's ear in China

A somewhat cringe-inducing video has been shared online showing a doctor pulling a two-centimetre-long cockroach out of a man's ear in southern China.

In the clip, captured in Shenzhen City in Guangdong Province on June 15, a cockroach can be seen in the ear of a man only named Li through an otoscope.

The doctor uses a pair of tweezers to pull it out slowly.

 

One of Li's relative is shocked and can be heard saying: "Cockroach? Are you sure it is a cockroach?"

Another video shows how the dismembered cockroach is still moving between the tweezers.

According to reports, it climbed into Li's ear when he was sleeping.
