A strange piece of metal fell out of my daughters ear!u

My kids and I were getting ready to do some reading before bed.My 8year old daughter was rubbing her ear with a tissiue;we noticed a small amount of blood;when a object fell out of her ear, we thought it was wax, but noticed some metal.We than looked and seen it was all metal,round with about 4 holes in it.It is about the size of the "O"key on the key board.

((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to Barb Becker, of Missouri Investigator Group, for following up on this case. Ms. Becker determined that the metal object was a tiny medical device, inserted into the eardrum of the young girl, in order to equalize pressure between the atmosphere, and the middle ear. PD))


Hi Peter:

Met up with ((name deleted)). Got the piece of metal found in his childs ear. After talking for awhile he told me she had had an ear infection and had a shunt put in. Well, I knew right then what it was. Found this pic on the internet. The piece from the ear is the little round piece with the holes.

Can you imagine a doctor left that in her ear!

Anyway, case closed. Thought you might like to know.
