Video courtesy Newslions media - Domestic helper Selvi, 42, was woken up in the middle of the night by a "crawling sensation" in her right nostril which became a "burning" feeling in her head. Baffled medics used a nasal endoscopy to find the creepy crawly "sitting in the skull base between her eyes". They were forced to used clamps and a sucker to get it out, but miraculously the bug was still ALIVE. Doctors said had Selvi ignored the scratchy sensation, the insect would have died, causing an infection close to her brain.
