A woman from Coral Springs, Florida says she cut herself on a razor blade embedded in the handle of a shopping cart at Walmart. The incident happened Sunday at 3800 block of Turtle Creek Drive.
Faith Ferels stated that she did not notice the razor blade was there when she first grabbed the cart. While in the store and looking for juice, she grabbed the cart's handle and touched the razor blade.
"Then when I saw it, I said, 'This can't be real,'" Ferels said "Why else would there be a blade on a handlebar if not to purposely cause damage to someone (or) something?"
Ferels says she went to customer service where they took a picture of the cart and gave her a bandage.
"They didn't take it serious," Ferels said. "I thought, you know, there's always a cop car outside of there, that they would have called a police officer, security, someone to look and try to find how it happened."
Walmart said it is investigating the incident and is regularly inspecting carts at the location in Coral Springs.
"It's disturbing that someone would purposely try to injure a customer or associate," Casey Staheli, a spokesman for Walmart, said in a statement to local news. "We take this matter seriously."
