Animal in an ear - level 2
A 48-year-old woman from Taiwan was suffering with ear pain. She checked herself into hospital. Doctors removed her hearing aid and found a fruit larva that was alive inside her ear which was causing the pain.
How did the larva get inside the woman’s ear? It is possible that the larva moved from fruit to the woman’s hearing aid. When she put the hearing aid into her ear, the larva was carried with it.
Luckily, doctors removed the larva and gave the woman some medication. Her ear healed within a few weeks.
Difficult words: hearing aid (small thing which helps people who cannot hear well), larva (small animal which changes to a fly), heal (get better).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
