(Scroll down for video) A mother rushed her son to the hospital after a teacher found him chewing a used condom while playing with other kids, according to police in Florida.

Fort Pierce police said that the incident unfolded on Wednesday around 3:45 p.m., at the St. Lucie Elementary School located at 2020 South 13th Street.

The teacher told police that while the 5-year-old children were playing in the school’s playground, she noticed that the 5-year-old boy was chewing on something.

When she looked closer, the teacher realized that the boy has a used condom in his mouth. The teacher immediately removed the condom and called the boy’s mother.

The mother took the boy to the Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute, where the child was placed under observation.

Police believe that some people were having sex in the school playground and discard the used condom when they were done.

A school security guard said that this wasn’t the first time that a used condom was found in the children's playground.
