Customers Hurt by Syringes Found in Clothes at Georgia Walmart

At least two people were hurt after four syringes were found hidden in bras, kids pajamas and other items of clothing at a Walmart store in Georgia.

Courtney Worthington, 14, was jabbed by a syringe while she tried on some pajamas her mom bought from the Catersville Walmart store, WXIA-TV reported.

"I felt something stick me in the finger and I was like, 'What is that?'" she said. "That's just unbelievable -- whoever would think of doing that is, like, crazy."

A few days later, Patricia Headrick had to be tested for AIDS and hepatitis after she was stuck by a syringe while opening a packet of bras at the same store.

"Everything started going through my mind," Headrick said. "Whose arm was this in? Whose body? Was this a used needle? Am I going to die based on this being in someone's body? I've been on a roller coaster."

A syringe was also found in the pocket of some pants in the store, then another in a pair of socks.
Walmart said there were no reports of syringes being found in its other stores and promised to investigate.

"If any of our customers were harmed, we will gladly pay for any valid medical expenses," spokeswoman Dianna Gee said.
