() — A St. John's man who was travelling in South America got the fright of his life Friday, when he was stung by a scorpion on an airplane.
Adam Young and Brendan Dawson, both from St. John's, were flying from Bogotá, Colombia, to Mexico City when they decided to take a nap.
"We had a full row of chairs each, perfect for napping," Young said in a Facebook post on Saturday.

"I was just about asleep when I felt an insect crawl in under my shirt," wrote Young, who is currently inaccessible by telephone.
