A passenger was stung by a scorpion aboard a United Airlines flight. The unidentified woman, who was flying from San Francisco to Atlanta, said she was stung by the scorpion while in the air.
She felt a stinging sensation on her leg and went to the restroom, TMZ reported. The woman said a live scorpion then dropped out of her pant leg and crawled across the floor and then was caught by flight attendants.
The woman was stung multiple times. Paramedics treated the victim after the plane landed. She reportedly did not suffer any major injuries.
In a statement, United said, “Upon landing in Atlanta, the flight was met by medical personnel. The customer was transported to a local hospital. We have been in contact with our customer to ensure her well-being.”
It not yet clear how the scorpion got inside the woman’s pants or on the flight.
