A man who found an intravenous (IV) needle at a playground in Tampines took to social media to warn other parents to be careful and alert with their own children.

In a post on September 15, Muhammad Alamin shared photos of the needle and wrote, “But please please please.. Please check the playground for hazards. Found this on the playground. Imagine a kid falling and accidentally poked them, (sic) or if a curious kid picks it up and plays with it.”

The needle was found at the playground near Block 207 of Tampines Street 21.

After covering it with a piece of tissue paper, he wrote that he observed traces of dried blood on it, meaning that it was likely a used needle, or one that someone had accidentally stepped on previously.

As a former teacher, Alamin wrote that he has found items such as syringes and used condoms at playgrounds before.

“Yes, tube is flexible . Plastic (the blue part) was broken, covered by the tissue that I was wrapping it with, so get poked by that and what was near it. Also traces of dried blood and other things which were not taken. What made it dangerous was that when I picked it up, the broken part was pointing upwards, needless to say, anyone barefooted would surely step on it and have a cut (sic)”, he added. /TISG
