A teenager was left horrified when he pulled out a live four inch-long centipede from his ear after suffering excruciating pain.
Grant Botti, a 14-year-old from Arkansas in the US, has no idea how the critter got into his ear, but had been swimming outdoors recently.
Grant was left with small abrasions in his ear
Botti woke up with a horrible pain in his ear, and felt "something strange" in it, so grabbed hold of the intruder and pulled it out.
The family took the centipede to the local hospital
Botti's mother drove her son to hospital, but luckily, the teen has been left with no lasting damage, KATV reported.
