Girl Gets Stabbed With Dirty Needle Trying on Pants
A young girl in Wyoming, Michigan, was trying on some pants in a local retail store and while doing so, was poked and stabbed by a used hypodermic needle.
According to WZZM, the girl said the needle scratched her leg and stabbed it. They when she put her hand in her pocket to find out what it was, the needle poked her.
The girls parents, Jessica and Timothy Fare, are suing the national retailer.
Jessica Fare said, "She was just kind of hysterical, saying something had poked her. She wasn't sure what was going on."
"Its just one of those moments as a parent that you're trying to comfort somebody, but you need to be comforted because you don't really know what's going on either," Jessica Fare said.
Originally the Fares had no plans of a lawsuit but when the retail outlet would never respond to their questions, they hired an attorney.
The attorney the Fares hired, Tim Seeger said, 'it's stressful, it's anxiety ridden. I don't know how I would react much less a 12-year-old girl."
The family has stated that this incident that happened to their daughter has caused her to become anxious regarding normal everyday things.
Timothy Fare said, "it's hard to explain to her that this isn't common. There's a likelihood it will never happen again, be we can't tell her that."
A spokesperson from the retail chain said this in a statement, "We're very sorry that this happened in our store and we investigated immediately once our guest made us aware. We reached out to the family last year to try and work toward a resolution, but didn't hear back from them until they filed a lawsuit last month. We will continue to work toward an amicable resolution for everyone involved."
