Man stung by scorpion that stowed away in luggage

A 27-year-old man arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport from Honolulu was stung by a scorpion as he claimed his luggage.

Apparently, the arachnid was an accidental stowaway that boarded the Hawaiian Airlines flight on his or someone else's bag on Tuesday, airport officials said.

It crawled onto his hand and stung him as he reached for his luggage. Someone else stepped on it and killed it.

The man, whose identity was not released, was treated at Harborview Medical Center.
