Mom Issues Warning About Awful Prank on Baby’s Changing Mat in Restroom
Mom Issues Warning About Awful Prank on Baby’s Changing Mat in Restroom

Someone apparently pulled a sick prank on a U.K. mother and her baby in a public restroom.

When Hayley Turner put her baby down on on the restroom’s changing table, the boy started screaming.

“I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down.” Hayley wrote on Facebook.

When she picked him up, she saw that someone placed pushpins (or drawing pins or thumbtacks) into the bottom of the mat.

“It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat,” wrote Hayley.

The thumbtacks punctured her child’s skin, giving him red marks on his back.

She then cautioned: “Because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total! Angry doesn’t even cover it. It’s quite sad to think this has to be done but my word of warning is to CHECK YOUR CHANGING MATS!!”

Her warning has been shared more than 100,000 times over the past few weeks.

She wrote in full:

I don’t normally post things like this but I’m guessing if it happened to me it could happen to someone else, so I thought I’d spread a little word of warning to prevent it happening in the future….

Today I changed Samuels’ nappy on a public changing mat, somewhere I trust to be a safe place. When I led him down he screamed. I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down. It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat. Our poor baby boy was led on pins!!! And because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total! Angry doesn’t even cover it. It’s quite sad to think this has to be done but my word of warning is to CHECK YOUR CHANGING MATS!!
