Getting an earful: Cricket found living inside man's ear canal

A cricket was found burrowing inside a man's ear canal in Vietnam.

Footage filmed at Hai Duong Hospital in Hai Duong province shows endoscope footage of the tiny creature digging around in the man's ear.

The patient complained to Dr Hoat that he had tried everything to remove the cricket but it was still causing him pain.

It is believed the cricket crawled into his ear when looking for a place to nest.

Eventually, the cricket is removed.

The footage was captured on July 26.
