Scorpion Stings Passenger On United Airlines Flight (Photo)

It’s been a rough week for United Airlines. Richard Bell, a passenger on United Airlines was allegedly stung by a scorpion while he was having dinner. This happened on the same day a passenger was infamously dragged off their plane in Chicago. 
The venomous creature fell from an overhead locker and landed on Bell’s hair as he was enjoying his dinner in his business class seat. His wife Linda told CNN, 
“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,” she told CNN.
She said her husband shooed the scorpion off his tray and it landed in the aisle, catching the attention of a nearby passenger who cried, “Oh my God, that’s a scorpion.”
It’s not clear how the scorpion got on the plane. The airplane had flown to Houston earlier in the day from Costa Rica, according to FlightAware, a flight-tracking platform.
The Bells were returning home from a vacation.
