“It was a full-grown cockroach,” Dr. M.N. Shankar told the Times.
It was located in the nasal cavity between the eyes and close to the brain, he said.
“It was alive. And it didn’t seem to want to come out,” Shankar added.
A medical team used a combination of forceps and suction and, after 45 minutes, were able to extract the bug, still alive and kicking.
