Watch Doctors Remove Live Cockroach From Woman’s Skull [VIDEO]

Doctors were shocked to find that a live cockroach was living inside inside a woman’s head.  They say it as it passed by the woman’s nose.



A woman who felt a ‘burning’ headache has astounded medics after a live cockroach was found crawling around in her skull.

Domestic helper Selvi, 42, said she woke up in the middle of the night suffering from a ‘crawling sensation’ in her right nostril and a ‘burning’ feeling in her head.

Scans revealed the creepy crawly was sitting in the skull base between her eyes.

Baffled doctors were forced to used clamps and a sucker to get it out in a tricky 45 minute procedure.

If she had ignored the scratchy sensation, experts believe, the insect would have died and caused an infection close to her brain.
