Linkfest: Deaf Boy's 'Q-tip Cure'

When he was two years old, Jerome Bartens was diagnosed as deaf in his right ear. Jerome struggled with his impaired hearing for nine years but the other day, he was suddenly cured.

After hearing a popping sound, Jerome found a tip of cotton wool bud in his ear and quickly pulled it out. "It was just incredible — his hearing returned to normal in an instant," said Jerome's father Carsten.
