Man’s Blocked Ear Turns Out To Be As A Result Of A Massive Cockroach Hiding Inside



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.


The doctor at the clinic was left shocked, letting out an “oh my god” which caused the patient to jump.

According to the New Zealand Herald, Zane was told: “I think you have an insect in your ear”.

For the next few minutes, the doctor tried to extract the bug but could only manage to pull the first half of a full-sized cockroach out.

To dislodge the rest of the insect’s body, a suction machine was used to successfully clear his ear.

Before discovering the insect in his ear, the doctor first believed Zane may have had a tumour.

He said the whole incident made him “physically sick”.

The shocked man told the New Zealand Herald: “I felt [my eardrum] pop as it came away. The lady who extracted it said: ‘I’ve never seen this before. I’ve read about it, but never seen it’.

“She kept saying: ‘Oh my God’. When she first said it I thought I had a tumour.”

Zane believes if he had not gone to get a second opinion, he could have been left with the cockroach still roaming in his ear.

He was also concerned after learning what was in his ear that the first doctor’s advice could have seen him essentially boiling up the cockroach.

He said “I was basically doing a boil-up of that cockroach. On Sunday, I’d be sitting still and feel something moving around. I was deaf in that ear for those three days.”

Charles County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 5500 block of Rafael Drive in Pomfret at around 6pm on Wednesday night after receiving a 911 call from a neighbor, who said that he went to check on the homeowner, whom he had not seen since the day before, and saw him through a window lying unresponsive on the floor.

Inside the house, police officers found tanks on racks housing 125 snakes.

Jennifer Harris, a spokesperson for Charles County Animal Control, told the station WRC-TV that the breeds included rattlesnakes, spitting cobras, black mambas – the most venomous snakes in Africa – and a 14-foot-long Burmese python.

Just two drops of a black mamba’s fast-acting venom can kill a human by shutting down the nervous system and inflicting paralysis while a spitting cobra can spray venom from its fangs into its victim’s eyes from 10 feet away, causing blindness. Both breeds are illegal to keep as pets in the US.

All the snakes in Riston’s home were well-cared for by their owner according to Police. Police had to assure neighbors that if any of the other snakes have escaped, the cold winter weather will kill them before they get very far.

Charles County Animal Control Chief Ed Tucker said this is the largest private collection of snakes he has ever encountered in his 30 year career.
