Richard Bell says that scorpion dropped onto his head from the overhead compartment during lunch when he was flying from Houston to Calgary in Canada.
The victim told that scorpion fell on his head and he flicked it away without realizing what exactly happened. Then Canadian put the scorpion on the tray in front of him, but the creature stung him. Finally, Bell threw it onto the floor and stomped on it, the airline crew threw it in the toilet afterwards. A nurse who appeared to be aboard gave the passenger anesthetic and Bell was taken to hospital after jet landed. Canadian said he is not going to sue the company.
It is noteworthy that the incident took place on Sunday, the same day when a man, who refused to give up his seat for airlines employees, was forcefully dragged off from another flight.
