June 20 (UPI) -- A doctor in China used tweezers to reach into a patient's ear and pulled out the cause of his discomfort -- a live cockroach.

A video recorded at a hospital in Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, shows the doctor using an otoscope to peer into the man's ear after he came in complaining of discomfort.


The doctor then uses tweezers to pull a live cockroach out of the patient's ear. The insect can be seen still moving one removed from the ear.
