Sky News is reporting that an Australian man needed medical intervention after a cockroach burrowed into his ear while he slept. He woke up because it was causing him so much pain, he tried to suck it our with a vacuum cleaner, but apparently that just made the little bugger go deeper into his ear.

His roommate took him to the hospital where a doctor tried to extract it with oil but that, too, caused the cockroach to burrow further. Then the man describes how he could tell that the cockroach was dying inside him. A doctor finally removed the roach with a forceps. The man says he doesn't plan on taking any precautions when sleeping from now on.
