PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Children searching for Easter eggs at a southeast Portland playground found a water bottle that contained syringes.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://is.gd/uf2q58 ) the bottle was hidden in bushes at the playground that’s across from a church.

Geoffrey and Molly Halsey brought their two children to the playground to join other kids. A boy returned to the adults holding the bottle.

Molly Halsey recalls the boy saying, “Look what I found.”

She says the parents - several of whom are nurses - were horrified by the discovery, but grateful the needles were at least in a container and didn’t prick someone.

One parent posted a photo on Facebook, along with the comment: “Welcome to the big city.”
