Any parent would become anxious when they receive a call from their child’s teacher during school hours. But the mother of an eight-year-old boy from Colorado in America was horrified when she was told her son had picked up a condom on the playground and put it in his mouth.

Any parent would become anxious when they receive a call from their child’s teacher during school hours. But the mother of an eight-year-old boy from Colorado in America was horrified when she was told her son had picked up a condom on the playground and put it in his mouth. 

7News reports the teacher found the boy with the condom in his mouth, trying to blow it up. He apparently thought it was a balloon. She said the condom looked used.

The teacher immediately phoned the boy’s mother, Alicia, and his mouth was rinsed out at school, after which he was given medical tests.

The boy’s blood will now have to be regularly tested for sexually transmitted diseases and his mother is afraid he may get an illness that could change his life forever.

He is being tested for HIV, hepatitis C, herpes, gonorrhea and chlamydia.

The mother says she is not upset that the school is not paying for his medical expenses.
