The city playground on the north end off Lakebottom Park in Columbus, Georgia, reopened around noon today after workers inspected it for razor blades, which a parent reported finding on playground equipment this morning..
Police and city workers said the blades were taped to places children were likely to touch.
Columbus Police Officer Tricia Wolfley was working traffic patrol at the red light across the street from the playground about 9 a.m. when a woman with a 2-year-old boy came over and told the officer what she found, Wolfley said.
The officer began searching the playground and found nine blades. They were "boxcutter type blades," Wolfley said. "They were taped in places kids of all ages would grab."
