The Scariest Part About The Big Syringe Find In An Adelaide Park

Oct 16, 2018


As if finding more than 60 syringes in an Adelaide reserve wasn’t bad enough, they were only metres from where kids were playing.

Malcolm Doyle from Our Coast Our Mission made the find at Perry’s Bend Reserve.

“Where that particular spot is there’s a picnic table not three metres away, this is behind some reeds,” Malcolm told FIVEaa’s Alan Hickey. “All it takes is for a kid to kick a ball and go and retrieve it and walk into this.”

“Right next to it is also a mini ramp area for kids to learn mountain biking. I had 10 or 15 families walk past me during that time wondering what we were catching. I showed them and they’ve gone white pretty quick.”
