Terrifying Moment Plane Passengers Find Live Scorpion In Overhead Cabin

We’ve all heard of Snakes on a Plane, right? Well, what about scorpions on a plane?



No, that’s not the title of an uncalled for sequel – it’s actually the reality faced by a group of terrified passengers during their flight in Indonesia this week.

A scorpion was spotted scurrying along the overhead cabin on a Lion Air flight bound for Jakarta, much to the dismay of everyone on board. The incident was filmed and posted on social media, just in case you weren’t sure what pure nightmare fuel looked like.




According to The Jakarta Post, Lion Air spokesman Danang Mandala Prihantoro said on Friday that the airline was still investigating the appearance of the venomous animal, although he did add: “Based on our observation of the video, it seems like a spider.”

Nope, that’s definitely a scorpion. Apparently it resembles a small poisonous scorpion known locally as kalajengking.




Definitely not a worry you want to be having whilst 30,000 ft up in the air. The question now is, just where did the little stinger run off to?
