A flight from LA to Portland returned to the gate at LA after a woman was stung by a scorpion. The flight crew immediately subdued the 8-legged terrorist killing it instantly without help from Samuel Jackson (Snakes on a Plane). A search for additional scorpions turned up empty. The woman got off the plane and did not return. It is a mystery how the scorpion boarded the plane and avoided the watchful eyes of APHIS.
We do know that the plane had been in Mexico before flying to LA. I have two possible scenarios.
1) Someone left a bag on the ground and a scorpion crawled in then left the bag once it was on the airplane.
2) Someone was illegally smuggling scorpions into the US and one of them escaped during the flight to LA.
Other ideas? I think Scenario 2 is more likely.
