Using an otoscope scan, the doctor discovered a live cockroach burrowing into the 52-year-old man's ear canal. "It's still alive, still moving," the doctor can be heard on video saying, according to The Daily Mail.
She cut the roach into pieces to remove it and disinfected Li's ear with alcohol in case it had laid eggs. [Daily Mail, 6/18/2018]
• When Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo, 20, of Santa Teresa, Paraguay, failed to return after leaving his home June 14, his family assumed the worst.
The town lies on the border with Brazil, reported the BBC, and is a hotbed of illegal drug activity. Police found a charred body three days later and called Penayo's family, who, despite being unable to identify the remains, accepted that it must be him and proceeded with funeral arrangements.
As they mourned over his casket during the wake, Penayo walked nonchalantly into the room.
The body in the casket was returned to the morgue, and Penayo's family celebrated his return. [BBC, 6/19/2018]
