Scorpion stings passenger on United Airlines flight

On the same day that a United passenger was being dragged off his flight, beaten bloody, a different United flight, this one from Houston to Calgary, was having problems of its own–this time with a scorpion.

Richard Bell and his wife, Linda, were eating lunch in their business class seats on Sunday when a scorpion fell from the overhead bin and landed in his hair.

“My husband felt something in his hair. He grabbed it out of his hair and it fell onto his dinner table. As he was grabbing it by the tail it stung him,” Linda told CNN, going on to say that Richard scooped the scorpion off of his tray, and it landed in the aisle, prompting another passenger to declare, “Oh my god, that’s a scorpion.”

According to Linda, the flight attendants were able to catch the venomous creature and flushed it down an airplane toilet.

“Our flight attendants helped a customer who was stung by what appeared to be a scorpion on a flight last week,” United said in a statement. “Our crew immediately consulted with a MedLink physician on the ground who provided guidance throughout the incident and assured our crew that it was not a life-threatening matter.”
