Leech Affixes Itself Onto Woman's Eyeball

 - Apr 24, 2009
Oh, this is just horrible. Doctors in Australia were forced to think outside the box when a leech attached itself to an Australian woman’s eyeball. The incident occurred after the woman got soil in her face while gardening. Her lucky husband then got to watch as the leech wriggled across her eyeball to safety underneath her eyelid.

Of course, Steve-O thought it was a good idea and attached a leech to his own eyeball--URGH! The good news is that should this happen to you, saline is the way to remove the leech. It kind of makes sense, especially if you think of what happens to snails when they go near chalk or salt.
