Omaha girl treated after finding condom at school

By: Newsroom

A 6-year-old girl has undergone a battery of tests and precautionary treatment after finding a condom on her school playground and, thinking it was a balloon, put it in her mouth.

The incident happened Wednesday outside Lothrop Magnet Center in northeast Omaha. Omaha Public Schools spokeswoman Luanne Nelson says several children found the condom, but only the girl handled it.

Nelson says a school nurse cleaned the girl's mouth and hands, and then called the girl's father. The girl's parents took her to a doctor. She spent several hours undergoing tests and receiving a shot for sexually transmitted diseases as a precaution.

Nelson says it's not known whether the condom had been used, but that it was sent to a hospital for testing.
