Global News reports that a Canadian couple's Mexican vacation came to an unfortunate end when they were flying home to Calgary from Houston.
Richard and Linda Bell were on the flight when a scorpion fell from an overhead bin onto Richard's head. He dropped it on his plate, then picked it up again. That's when the scorpion struck and bit him.
The animal, likely a stowaway from another passenger, was then stomped on and thrown in the toilet.
Emergency services were called in, but Bell was reportedly not in distress. He declined medical treatment.
This has turned out to be an eventful week for United, as well as for scorpions.
