An Australian teenager was terrified to find a leech in her sock, after returning from a bush walk at Steavenson Falls, Victoria.
Zoe Nesic posted this footage on TikTok, showing her horrified reaction to the parasite on her ankle.
“I noticed a fizzing sensation on my ankle and my heart dropped instantly. I lifted my pants to find a fat lump under my sock,” she told Storyful.
In the video, Nesic screams for help, saying, “I don’t want to lift up my sock,” before peeling it back to reveal the engorged leech.
