Scorpion stings man on United Airlines flight


(CBC) A Calgary man says he’s looking for some kind of compensation from United Airlines after a scorpion dropped on his head and stung him while he was enjoying his lunch in business class.

“While I was eating, something fell in my hair from the overhead above me,” said Richard Bell, who was coming home from Houston on Sunday with his wife, Linda.

“I picked it up, and it was a scorpion. And I was holding it out by the tail, so it couldn’t really sting me then.”

That’s when a fellow passenger told Bell the bug was potentially quite dangerous, he said.
