SAN FRANCISCO, California – A woman went to try on a skirt at her local JC Penney, but she found much more than she anticipated.

While trying on the dress, Sandra Hernandez told KPIX, she pulled the skirt on and shook it, that’s when the scorpion fell out onto the floor.

Hernandez said the scorpion looked about 3 inches long and she called employees who tried to catch the scorpion before it slipped between the floor and baseboard.

Hernandez used to work at the JC Penney and she thinks the scorpion came from a warehouse and isn’t a problem specifically within the store.
