A mother made a shocking discovery when she was changing her infant son in a public restroom in the UK. The discovery left her furious and her son hurt. Hayley had placed her son down on a changing mat and he suddenly began to scream and cry.
At first, she assumed he was tired and cranky, but when she picked him back up, she noticed his back was blotchy and red. Looking closer at the mat she was horrified by what she found.
“It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat,” Hayley wrote on Facebook. She was justifiably outraged and shared her story to warn other mothers to be careful.
“I don’t normally post things like this but I’m guessing if it happened to me it could happen to someone else, so I thought I’d spread a little word of warning to prevent it happening in the future…”
“Today I changed Samuels’ nappy on a public changing mat, somewhere I trust to be a safe place. When I led him down he screamed. I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down.”
“It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat. Our poor baby boy was led on pins!!!”
“And because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total! Angry doesn’t even cover it. It’s quite sad to think this has to be done but my word of warning is to CHECK YOUR CHANGING MATS!!”
This sick prank reminds me of another cruel prank that happened in the UK when a little girl got hurt after someone had put superglue on the toilet seat. It just goes to show you can never be too careful with your children when using public facilities these days!
Share Hayley’s warning with your family and friends!
