As the USA Today, on Friday morning, December 6, the passenger of a plane was stung by a scorpion - a woman noticed him when he fell from her leg.

Natalie Noonan, a spokeswoman for United Airlines, confirmed that the passenger was stung.

“Having learned that one of our clients on the 1554 flight from San Francisco to Atlanta was stung during the flight, our team immediately responded and consulted with a doctor on site who provided medical guidance,” Noonan said.

When the plane landed in Atlanta, he was met by medical personnel.

“The client was taken to the local hospital,” Noonan said. “We stay in touch with the client to make sure that everything is safe with her.”

This is not the first time that a scorpion got on a flight without a ticket. This is at least the third incident involving a scorpion, which caused unrest in the plane only in 2019 year.

Earlier this year, in February, a passenger filmed a scorpion crawling out of baggage at the time the Lion Air flight landed in Indonesia. Just a month later, a student flying from Toronto to Calgary was bitten by a scorpion mid-flight.
