Jerome Bartens, aged 11 after a cotton wool bud unknowingly stuck in his ear for 9 years suddenly came free and returned to him the gift of full hearing. Hearing specialists had repeatedly missed the lodged cotton bud tip over the years. Also highlighting the potential danger of pushing cotton buds in your ears.
