Hendrik Helmer of Karama, Northern Territory, Australia woke up at 2:30 in the morning with a sharp pain in one of his ears--like something was burrowing into his head. He tried to flush it out with water, but that only angered the creature.

So he went to the hospital. Doctors used forceps to remove a 2 centimeter-long cockroach from his ear.

Mr. Helmer now sleeps with headphones or earplugs.

Here's a video of the encounter:
