Washington, Aug 24 (ANI): A family in the US is threatening a lawsuit against a hotel in Atlanta after their 4-year-old son developed sores from a used condom that was found in the room they were staying at.
Attorney Thomas Jones revealed that Chase Del'Shawn Jones was staying with his grandmother, Carmen Jones, and other family members at the Wyndham Garden Hotel on Piedmont Avenue NE in Atlanta on July 31.
The attorney said the boy's grandmother was in the bathroom when she heard another member of her family scream.
And when she ran out of the restroom she saw her grandson with a used condom in his mouth, and he was attempting to blow it up.
According to the attorney, the condom had semen inside it, and the boy had found it in the sheets of the bed.He had his tongue in it. I immediately took it out of his mouth," myFOXatlanta.com quoted Jones as saying in a statement released by her attorney.
The attorney said the hotel manager came to the room, and took possession of the condom, citing company policy, even though Jones had requested to keep it so it could be tested.
The family then took the boy to a family doctor and later to a hospital for treatment.
They say he developed sores in his mouth following the incident, and he has had a series of tests. They say the results are pending.
Jones' attorney says she has filed a report with the Atlanta Police Department. (ANI)
