Canadian Stung By Scorpion On Delta Airlines Flight

Its been a rough week for  United Airlines.

A Canadian passenger returning from a holiday in Mexico with his wife was stung by a scorpion during a flight, Globalnews reported on April 11.

“We were on the plane about an hour, having dinner, and then something fell on my head, so I grabbed it,” passenger Richard Bell told CBS in a Skype interview on its website.

Bell said another passenger who was Mexican told him, “‘Hey, that’s a scorpion, they’re dangerous,’ … That’s when it stung.”

United flight attendants helped the passenger after he was bitten “by what appeared to be a scorpion,” airline spokeswoman Maddie King said in an email yesterday – adding that a physician on the ground assured the crew that “it was not a life-threatening matter.”

The incident was reported the day after the global scandal provoked by the forced evacuation of a randomly selected client to leave a place for a United Airlines employee.
