(Scroll down for video) A boy in Colorado, will undergo testing for the next year after he mistook a used condom for a balloon and placed it in his mouth.

A teacher saw the 8-year-old boy with the condom in his mouth and quickly took it away.

The teacher then told the boy to wash his hands and rinse his mouth.

The condom was discarded before being tested, meaning that the child will have to undergo frequent testing for sexually transmitted diseases for next year to make sure that he did not catch any disease.

The incident unfolded in a school playground. The boy is at risk for HIV, Hepatitis C, Herpes, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia.

The mother of the boy is devastated, saying that the child is at risk of being sick for life, costing him millions of dollars in medical bills just because of a used condom.
