Watch for Needles While Pumping Gas Read this before your next gas fill-up.
This world gets sicker everyday!
Please take a couple minutes to read this warning about Gas Pumping Handles. Warning: Look at the gas pump handle BEFORE you pump your gas. Please read and forward to anyone you know who drives a
car. My name is
Captain Abraham Sands of the
or persons have been affixing hypodermic needles to the underside of gas pump
handles! These needles appear to be
infected with HIV positive blood. In the
been 17 cases of people being stuck by these needles over the past five (5) months. We have verified reports of at least 12 others in various states around the country. It is believed that these maybe copycat incidents due to someone reading about the crimes or seeing them reported on television. At this point no one has been arrested and catching the perpetrator(s) has become our top priority. Shockingly, of the 17 people who where stuck, 8 have tested HIV positive and because of the nature of the disease, the others could test positive in a couple years. Evidently the consumers go to fill their car with gas, and when picking up the pump handle get stuck with the infected needle.
IMPERATIVE TO CAREFULLY CHECK THE HANDLE of the gas pump each time you use one.
