A scorpion was lurking under the kitchen table

Dr Benjamin Zeier was a victim of a common trap

While his wife Lena was taking her Peruvian driver’s license test, the urologist was supervising his children doing their homework.  Clandestinely a scorpion took up its position under the table.  When Benjamin finally got up the unwelcomed visitor saw its chance and stung him.  Dr Zeier reported that a few hours later he suffered from nausea and diarrhoea.

Up to 2,500 different scorpion species are known of which only 1% can be lethal for humans.  Yearly between one and five thousand people die from being stung by a scorpion.
