Earlier this year, a scorpion was spotted crawling out of the overhead lockers of a Lion Air flight in Indonesia. Two years ago, a United Airlines had said that he was stung by a scorpion on a flight from Houston in Texas to Calgary in Canada. It had fallen from the overhead luggage rack onto his head. In the recent incident, it is not sure if the scorpion was present inside the flight or was it had crept into from clothes before boarding the plane.
