"I looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg", Dr Hong Chi Ting, an ophthalmology professor at the Fooyin University Hospital told the BBC. Speaking to the British broadcaster, Dr Hong said he was "shocked" to plucked four 4mm insects from the woman's eyes. "They were still intact and all alive". He, was visiting the gravesite of a family member during the country's annual tomb-sweeping festival.

During the press release, Doctor Hung revealed the bees are often found in the mountains and near graves which would make sense for how He came into contact with them.

According to the Guardian, doctors at the Fooyin University Hospital in Taiwan were horrified after seeing the bees and described it as a "world's first". During a recent press conference, the woman explained that she began to feel off, as if she had gotten dirt or sand in her left eye, as she was clearing the gravesite of weeds.
