11-Year-Old Boy Partially Deaf for Nine Years Is Suddenly Cured
An 11-year-old boy from Britain, who was partially deaf for nearly 10 years, was suddenly cured when a thick piece of cotton popped out of his ear.
Jerome Bartens was diagnosed as deaf in his right ear when he was just two-years-old.
Over the next nine years, he struggled to live a normal life as a young boy — but everything changed when he felt a sudden pop in his right ear while playing a game of pool with friends.
He put his finger in his ear and pulled out a tip of a cotton wool bud that had been wedged in his ear since he was a toddler.
"It was very strange at first to be able to hear everything," said Barten.
"But now I'm getting used to it — it's great that people don't have to shout to me or that I don't have to turn my head all the time."
