  • Bees found living in woman's eye
Sharjah 24 – Reuters: A Taiwanese woman is recovering after having four living bees removed from one of her eyes. Doctors say the tiny bees were feeding off the tears inside her eye.
A Taiwanese woman had living bees removed from one of her eyes, a doctor at Fooyin University Hospital revealed last Wednesday.

The patient, who was identified as Ms. He, reported a stinging pain in her eye after visiting her ancestor's grave during a yearly tomb-sweeping festival.

Doctor Hong Chi Ting said he was surprised to find four sweat bees on the inside of the patient's eye, adding the patient's central nervous system was not affected.
