Man Gets Bitten By Scorpion On A Mexicana Flight

Tue Mar 04, 2003 3:29 am

A local area Chicago man was bitten by scorpion on a Mexicana Airlines Chicago bound flight. I just saw it on WGN news at noon. There is a link to the story on but you have to be a member to read it. I think they said the man is from Guanajuato. So i am guessing the flight originated in Leon.

How did the scorpion get on board of the plane, did a passenger carried the animal along? Scorpions are very shy and I can not believe that it was living on the ramp because it is usually very loud there.

Hope he's doing fine. It must've hurt like hell but it’s not the worst thing that can happen to you.

This is the first time I've read of anyone getting bitten by a scorpion in an aircraft!

Did it bite him or sting him? There is a big difference.

I remember an incident where a passenger had a scorpion in her pocket for the whole duration of a charter flight from the Caribbean to the UK without even knowing until they put their had in their pocket on arrival, and got a nasty suprise!

I was bitten once by a scorpion in El Salvador. It got me in the hand and it hurt like a bastard, until my entire arm went numb. I thought I was going to die.

Just to make it politically correct, A scorpions means of defense is by stinging with its tail, not by bitting. I have had many experiences with those damn things living in Phoenix, AZ. Still I have not been stung by a scorpion to this day. I hear it is not a good experience!

Hmmm..apparently scorpions like flying Mexicana. Some years ago, a friend of mine (whose husband, BTW, is a Mexicana A320 pilot) was flying MX SFO-PVR-MX), Mexico">MEX with her 5 year old son. It was a red eye, so they were both asleep, until she woke up to find a scorpion crawling down her child's arm (he was still asleep). She used a magazine to brush the thing off the boy's arm, so it didn't sting him.

Hey I just wrote what the paper and tv station said, "bitten" not stung,  Innocent And those WGN reporters call themselves journalists. I shouldn't be saying anything I am journalism major myself.

The man is doing fine, they showed him walking around. He got stung on the back.
