Silence the messenger
Thursday, December 6, 2012
An EgyptAir flight was forced to divert yesterday after a passenger was bitten by a snake he had smuggled on board.
The pilots decided to perform an emergency landing at a nearby airport after hearing the terrifying screams of the victim.
Al Ahram website reports that the passenger was from Jordan and had secretly stashed the animal in his hand luggage.
It comes two weeks after a stowaway scorpion caused panic on an aeroplane when it stung a passenger during a trans-Atlantic flight.
