Disturbing find along Delray Beach

DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A disturbing find along Delray Beach today.

Robert Peterson found a plastic bag full of needles and other medical supplies caught up in the seaweed.

He brought the bag to the nearest lifeguard stand and discovered two other needles in the sand along the way.

Police were called to investigate. "Obviously, the worst thing is to get some infection, but it's not what you want to see on the beach," said Peterson.

"You know we look for shells and things like that," said tourist Thomas Croteau. "But. we never think to look for needles, that would be surprising to find something like that here, such a pretty place."

It's unlikely officials will try to find where the bag came from.

Lifeguards searched the beach for other needles or medical supplies, but nothing was found.
