Doctors Find Bug in Ear of Teen Football Star
A teen football star woke up with noise and pain in his right ear. It turned out there was more than wax buildup in there.
He hurried to a clinic in Stillwater, where he was examined and told that a dime-sized beetle had taken up residence in his ear. Problem was, it had burrowed in so deep the doctor couldn't remove it ... Asp was sent to United Hospital where the beetle was surgically removed.
