4-Year-Old Girl Finds Condom In Playground, Condom Tests Positive For Chlamydia

When a four-year-old girl found a con­dom on the school play­ground dur­ing recess, she was blow­ing it like a bal­loon. What makes this sto­ry even worse is that the con­dom in ques­tion had test­ed pos­i­tive for chlamy­dia — a sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted disease.

The lit­tle girl attends the Mil­wau­kee Acad­e­my of Chi­nese Lan­guage (Wis­con­sin), and the school called the par­ents inform­ing them she need­ed to be tak­en to the hospital.

Her father, George Har­rell, said he’s very upset because nobody seems to care. He said he was told the con­dom was in the tot-lot play area of the play­ground, and his daugh­ter was blow­ing air into it, think­ing it was a balloon.

A teacher saw the lit­tle girl with the con­dom and took it away. The con­dom was test­ed and found to have traces of chlamy­dia.

Har­rell said he shud­ders when he thinks about where the con­dom was before it was dis­posed of in the play­ground. He said this should nev­er have hap­pened – not to her.

While the lit­tle girl was not pos­i­tive for chlamy­dia, the doc­tors gave her antibi­otics any­way just to make sure.

The school’s play­ground is locat­ed near The Rave, which is a pop­u­lar con­cert spot. Par­ents want to know why the play­ground hadn’t been cleaned before the chil­dren went outside.

Har­rell has since removed his daugh­ter from that school to anoth­er one.

The Mil­wau­kee Pub­lic School dis­trict said the teacher act­ed right away and brought her to the school nurse, who then called the par­ents. The school is with the fam­i­ly about their con­cerns and is look­ing for ways to bet­ter secure the area. They have also asked MPD to do more patrolling from now on in their area.
