Calgary mom angry after son cut by razor blades embedded in slide
CALGARY — A Calgary family says it's in shock after a four-year-old boy was cut by disposable razor blades wedged into a playground slide.
Gillian Webster says her son, James, was cut on his buttocks and hand at the northeast playground on Monday morning.
She says his injuries were minor and did not require stitches.
Police say the blades were removed before officers arrived.
There are no security cameras in the area and investigators are seeking tips from the public.
Webster said the playground is a popular spot in the community, and her family has been there multiple times.
``I felt sick to my stomach ... I felt extreme sadness, anger. It was quite a shock as I'm sure it would be for any parent,'' she said.
Police are calling the case an isolated incident, but say it's a good reminder for parents to check playground equipment before their children use it.
