A woman in California was trying on a dress, when she realized she wasn't alone.

Sandra Hernandez was shopping at a JCPenney in Hayward, California.

She took a dress into a changing room, put it over her head, and lowered the skirt.

"And when i pulled the skirt down, I gave it a shake. When I gave it a shake, the scorpion fell to the floor," said Hernandez.

The scorpion was alive and coming toward her.

"It charged at my boot, with its tail up. It was so quick, so I did a side-step and gave it a kick to keep it in the room," said Hernandez.

The scorpion escaped the changing room through a crack in the wall.

No one was hurt.

Hernandez did not buy the dress.
