Emergency procedure carried out to remove live moth from man's ear

A man requested a midnight procedure at a clinic in Vietnam after he complained of a live moth in his ear.

The unnamed man from Lai Chau province arrived at Dr Cuong's clinic late at night and said that the moth had flown into his ear canal.

Using an endoscope, Dr Cuong discovered the critter wriggling around.

He removed the insect and the man was only lightly scratched inside his ear.

The footage was captured on June 17 last year.
