Woman Attacked by Scorpion on Portland Bound Flight

There’s a lot to worry about on flights.  Injuries due to turbulence, angry anti-reclining zealots, and passengers that just ate at Ben’s Chili Bowl.

But a woman experienced something previously just part of Samuel L. Jackson’s darkest nightmares–scorpions on a plane.

While the airline still doesn’t know how the scorpions got on the plane, a scorpion was successful in stinging a passenger on an Alaska Airlines LAX-PDX route.

Luckily, the sting happened before the flight actually took off.  The results were nasty (KGW has a photo of the incident), but after a delay, the flight crew was able to get the MF scorpions off the MF plane.

  1. ATTACKED?
    Stung?
    It is not as if the scorpion was looking for her and attacked her with premeditation.

      I just meant it in a Samuel-L.-Jackson-The-Snakes-Are-After-Us parody. Just like snakes probably wouldn’t proactively go after passengers on a plane, nor would a shark flying through a cockpit take the time to attack a flight attendant (even if it IS Kelly Osborne).
