WARNING: Graphic images
A dad had to rush to A&E after cutting his hand open on a razor blade stuck to a children's climbing frame.
Ross Lambert was out with his daughter at their local park in Scotland when he sliced his palm on the blade concealed in the wooden shelter of a slide.
The 39-year-old shared photographs of his bloodied hand on Facebook, calling the people responsible for it 'scumbags'.
He wrote: "Took my daughter and dog to the little park at wester inch found this imbedded in the wooden shelter of the slide. What little scumbag does this? imagine it was a 4yr old that "found" it rather than me!"
After going to hospital to have his injuries seen to he shared an update about his condition.
It said: "UPDATE, my injury turned out a lot worse than it looked, luckily only ended up with 3 very painful stitches! But a couple of return trips to hospital in the near future!"
Since he posted the shocking pictures yesterday, it has been shared more than 4,000 times and received more than 1,000 comments, with many appalled by the 'sick' people responsible.
One person wrote: "Some very sick and twisted people out there. Trying not to think of the whys here cos it's too difficult to comprehend that info really. Do hope you're OK."
Another concerned friend said: "Absolutely disgusting.....obviously don't give to hoots about anybody or anything."
A third person put: "Hope the guys ok. Something needs to be done. Things like this should not be happening."
Speaking to the Sun about the incident the dad-of-two said: "I've been trying to think about it and I don't know what people get out of doing it. Especially when it's aimed at children, I could understand if it was aimed at adults or if it was something funny like super glue on a chair or something.
"But to put sharp razor blades at a kids park - anyone who does that needs locked up. That's malicious, it's not a prank.
"What's the motivation? Anyone who does that needs serious help. I don't even want to say what I would do to them.
"My son uses that park every day. Luckily the weather wasn't that great so it wasn't busy. But it could've happened to a three-year-old girl so in a way I'm glad it was me. Wester Inch is a nice place and everyone lets their kids out."
He added: "If it happened to a kid it could have been a hell of a lot worse. It could have affected a kids' life if it got a nerve or a tendon, so I'm just glad it was me instead. My daughter could have touched it instead."
