Doctors in China investigating a woman's complaint about an itchy ear found a spider living in her ear canal.

The doctor said the spiker must have crawled into her ear while she was sleeping.

Instead of trying to extract the spider while it was alive -- out of fear that it might go further into her ear, or bit her -- doctors decided to roce it out with a saline solution.

They believe the spider had been living inside her ear for five days.
