The following was sent to us by a concerned parent that lives in Fairhaven, Massachusetts:
“ATTENTION FAIRHAVEN PARENTS: I was just informed that my kiddos were walking with their dad to Livesey park and our son found and picked up a needle (we had never had to talk to him about it till now!) Dad checked him, he didn’t scratch himself or poke himself and dad had serious talk with him. But just putting it out there since it’s so close to home!
Sad world we live in.”
NOTE: The photo is NOT needles found by the child, just a stock photo.
