A family in Calgary is in shock after a four-year-old boy was cut by disposable razor blades wedged into a playground slide in Thorncliffe.

Gillian Webster has said that her son James was cut at a northeast playground and he suffered minor injuries that did not require stitches.

“I felt sick to my stomach,” said Webster. “I felt extreme sadness, anger. It was quite a shock as I’m sure it would be for any parent.” “It’s not something that you would ever think would happen to your child.”

Webster’s son was in the care of the family’s dayhome provider when it happened. Staff immediately notified the parents, who contacted Health Link and police. The playground is a popular spot in the community, and the family has been there multiple times.

Police has said that the blades were removed before officers arrived and there are no CCTV cameras in the area. They’re asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area to contact them. 

While there are no other reported incidents of razor blades hidden on playground equipment, police believe this is an isolated incident. Investigators said that it’s a good reminder for parents to be aware and check equipment before their kids use it.
