All Caught on Tape

Peruvian doctors posted a video of them removing (what looks like) some sort of giant larva from a boy’s eye cavity. The video is particularly interesting because instead of pulling the bug out, surgeons used basil leaves to draw out the massive grub. Perhaps this is standard practice in Peru.

The 17 year old boy took the operation like a champion, you’ll be really impressed at how well he handles what seems like a lot of pain.
