Aug 28, 2010 • Crime, News

A four-year-old found a used condom in Atlanta’s Wyndham Garden Hotel room where his family was staying. According to CBS, the child thought the condom was a balloon and put it in his mouth to inflate it.

“He tested negative for the HIV and the STD,” his grandmother, Carmen Jones, told CBS. “But positive for the herpes. It’s the oral herpes.”

A horrifying tale.

Information from CBS Atlanta.
