WELLESLEY (CBS) – A Wellesley woman was stung by a baby scorpion after returning from a trip overseas on Sunday.

The scorpion apparently traveled with the woman in her luggage from Italy. While she was unpacking at home, the agitated scorpion struck at around 3:30 p.m.

The woman was not seriously injured and did not go to the hospital after she was stung.

Wellesley firefighters took control of the scorpion at the scene.
