ZURICH (Reuters) - Creepy creatures approach women in bars all the time, but a Swiss woman was shocked to discover an African scorpion had stabbed her hand in a pub near Zurich early Wednesday, police said.
Police were still scratching their heads over how the 3-cm (one-inch) scorpion got into the pub in a Zurich suburb. It remained in the custody of a police reptile expert.
The 31-year-old victim was rushed to the hospital by ambulance with sharp pain and swelling in her arm. She remained in hospital Wednesday.
