The barrage of news about bodily fluids continues, this time via a report on NorthEndWaterfront.com about an incident this past Friday at the playground at Christopher Columbus Park, two hours after a father called 911 to report homeless men sleeping in the playground equipment and blood everywhere:
The playground area was teeming with children and mothers. I walked around the equipment and to my horror, at the back side, 2 of the tunnels were smeared with blood, there was a large puddle of urine and feces under the equipment. A little boy was just about to crawl through the tunnel. I yelled at him to stop and then told everyone they had to leave. I waited for the clean up crew, keeping everyone out of the area.
The park department's initial response: Send out a worker with some water and a pine-scented solution.
