"Rice Krispies" noise in boy's ear turns out to be nesting spiders

"Rice Krispies" noise in boy's ear turns out to be nesting spiders

Is this anyone else's greatest fear in life?!???

Dr. David Irvine said it looked like the boy had something in his ear when he examined him.

When he irrigated the ear, the first spider came out, dead. The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.

Jesse was given the spiders - now both dead - as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother has taken them to work.
