As per the Daily Mail:
We've all heard the one about people eating a spider while they sleep or creepy-crawlies going somewhere they shouldn't while we snooze - but for one poor woman the urban legend has come true. She arrived at China's Changsha Central Hospital with an itchy ear, only to learn the cause was a spider that had crawled into the ear canal. To make things worse, doctors believe the arachnid had been in there for five days.
At first the medics planned to use tweezers to grab the spider and pull it out - but they were worried the creature might bite the patient. Instead, Dr Liu Sheng and his colleagues poured a saline solution into the ear and waited for the spider to leave on its own.
Check out the actual image doctors took of the inside of this poor woman's ear. Fingers crossed it didn't lay any eggs.
