(Scroll down for video) A mother and her son are traumatized after the son was pricked by a syringe that was hidden inside a brand new hoodie.
The mom of Toutle, Washington, said that she gave her son what she thought was an innocent gift, but when the 16-year-old put on his new hoodie, he got pricked by a syringe.
Nanette Snyder said she bought the new hoodie at Walmart in Longview.
Tom Basye, Snyder’s boyfriend, said there was a second syringe in the sweater, and both seemed to be used with traces of blood on them.
“You do not expect to open presents only to find dirty, used needles,” Basye said.
The couple filed a complaint with Walmart, and the store said that they are investigating the incident.
The boy was taken to a local hospital to be tested for HIV and hepatitis, and so far, the tests have come back negative.
