You might not want to watch this video because it may cause you to have permanent insomnia. If you witness this spine-tingling video of a live cockroach being extracted from a woman’s skull you may have nightmares or you may just never go to sleep because you’re wondering if this could happen to you. You have been warned.
We take you to Chennai, India where a 42-year-old woman woke up in the middle of the night because she had a “crawling sensation” in her nostrils. No, it wasn’t a hardened snot boogie in her nose. Nope. It was a cockroach crawling around in her skull.
She went to the local clinic and was referred to a hospital, where they performed a nasal endoscopy which revealed a cockroach wriggling around in her nasal passages between her eyes.
“Whenever it moved, it gave me a burning sensation in my eyes,” the woman said.
“If left inside, it would have died before long and the patient would have developed infection which would have spread to the brain,” Dr. M. N. Shankar of the Stanley Medical College Hospital said.
That’s the point where I just opt to get a head transplant. I’ll take Ted Williams’ noggin, I don’t think he’s using it right now and it can’t hurt my softball game.
The full-grown roach was stuck inside her head for 12 hours. 12 HOURS OF A GIANT BUG CRAWLING AROUND IN YOUR BRAIN!!!
“It was alive,” the good doctor said. “And it didn’t seem to want to come out.” It took 45 minutes to remove the creepy crawler from her head using “a combination of suction and forceps.”
I’m going to have to wear one of those olde timey scuba helmets when I go to bed from now on.
A special dedication goes out to this poor woman for all that she has been through.
