Four razor blades were found melted into the slides at Emancipation Park and Boettcher Mills Road Park.

Police believe that the blades were inserted into the slides using a lighter.

While city workers immediately removed the blades, the incident is still causing concern.

Park visitor Roosevelt Dancey told KHOU, “This should be a safe haven for children. They should be able to be playing, be normal children.”
