Needles found on ETX preschool playground
Hallsville, Texas (Longview News-Journal) —
A Hallsville ISD family and the district are at odds about whether a 4-year-old boy was stabbed by a needle he found on the district’s Pre-K playground.
“What has upset me the most is the fact that they found two syringes and needles on the playground on the same day,” said Michael Kelly, who rushed his son Tyler to the emergency room when he saw what looked like a puncture wound on the boy’s hand. “Was there some kid that found it before my son and played with it and left it there?”
The district agrees that the boy found two syringes Friday at Hallsville Little Cats Pre-K campus playground. One syringe was capped, and the other was not.
No further action was taken because the child was not punctured, district officials said.
