  Spider crawls inside woman's ear
Updated 15 September 2003, 11.30



Anyone who's terrified of spiders will be chilled to the bone by the experience of a woman from Cardiff.

The woman, who's scared of spiders, went to her doctor after suffering from itching and strange noises in her ear.

The doc examined the woman - and found a spider crawling around inside her.

To make matters worse, the doc was spooked by spiders too. He told the woman to put ice water in her ear, then the scared pair watched it crawl out.

It turned out that the spider had been inside the woman's ear for more than 12 hours.

Tarantula

The doc was especially freaked out because his examining equipment magnified the tiny money spider to the size of a tarantula.

The woman, who's 36 and wants her identity to remain a secret, is now recovering from her ordeal.
