Australia - Mass Stabbing At Sydney High School

The police and ambulance crews were quickly dispatched to Plumpton High School in Sydney, Australia midday on Thursday following initial reports that three teenagers have been stabbed with a syringe in the said campus. The number of stabbing victims rose to eight by the time the responders arrived at the scene of the incident.

NSW Police said the whole thing started with a student who appeared to be pulling a “prank” and the eight students each got a “minor needle prick.”

The student is said to have randomly found a needle at a bus stop and recklessly used it on the other students. Some refuse to see the antic as mere “prank” but rather as a direct “attack”.

Emergency services treated the affected students at the scene. Further urgent blood tests will still have to be carried out, however, for safety purposes to rule out potential scary infections.

The students and their anxious parents may have to wait several months to complete a full round of blood tests.

The affected students had sustained injuries to their hands and legs as a result of the syringe stabbing.

Acting Inspector Shane Rolls, however, disputed the term “stabbing” and even described the students’ injuries as “minor.”

Roll said: “While this is a very concerning behavior, we want to reiterate that no students were stabbed as initial inquiries first may have led people to believe. At this stage, we would like to believe it was a prank gone wrong.”

He would only reassure that: “We will certainly be looking into if there was any malicious intent in the incident.”

Rolls also cautioned that they are still investigating whether the syringe was indeed picked up from a bus stop as initial reports put it.

Parents rushed to the school after learning about the incident on the internet to pick up their kids.

A small needle prick!! Its really a yuge deal if the needle found at the bus stop was some addicts needle with hepatitis!

I would rather get my ass beaten to a pulp then get "a minor prick" from a used needle!

Never ceases to amaze me.

Sticking other kids with a dirty needle.

That idiot kid certainly did not stick him/herself.

Those needle pricks could end up giving an incurable disease or even be a death sentence. I hope for the stickies sake that it was a disease free dirty needle… If even such a thing exists.

Even today that would have my kids fighting back. The parents should sue the pant`s off the parents of the needle stabber.
