Zane Wedding, from Auckland, New Zealand was left terrified after a blocked ear that he believed was due to water turned out to be a cockroach hiding inside his ear.

Zane shares that he woke up from his sleep with a strange sensation after his swimming session the day before. He finally decided to check with the doctor after he could feel movement in his ear, even then sitting still.

Doctors prescribed him antibiotics and gave him directions to blow a hairdryer near his ear in an attempt to dry out the area.

However, the sensation continued and would not go away after two nights of little sleep so he decided to see a specialist at an ear clinic.

Before the doctors could figure out what was really wrong with Zane, they suspected he has a tumor in his ear.

Zane recalls that the whole situation left him terribly physically sick.

As doctors found the real problem, they dislodged the rest of the insect's body, a suction machine was used to successfully clear his ear.

The shocked man told the New Zealand Herald: “I felt [my eardrum] pop as it came away. The lady who extracted it said: 'I've never seen this before. I've read about it, but never seen it'.

Zane says that had he not gone for a second opinion, he could have been left with the cockroach still roaming in his ear.

He was also concerned after learning what was in his ear that the first doctor's advice could have seen him essentially boiling up the cockroach.

"I was basically doing a boil-up of that cockroach. On Sunday, I'd be sitting still and feel something moving around. I was deaf in that ear for those three days."
