Talk about scary! An 11-year-old boy was stabbed in his foot while visiting an Ohio haunted house.
Apparently, an actor at the haunted house was using a real bowie knife as a prop to scare visitors, Fox News reported. The child was stabbed when he was about to enter the 7 Floors of Hell haunted house located at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea.
Last Saturday, the 22-year-old scare actor approached the boy and meant to stab the ground to scare him. Instead, he cut through the boy’s shoe and pierced his toe, authorities stated.
The mother of the child was called, and he was treated at the location. They refused further medical attention, and he was even able to continue touring the rest of the attraction.
The actor admitted the real knife was not a “good idea” to use and admitted to bringing it on his own.
The haunted house had supplied actors with prop knives, but evidently, he wanted to use a real one. Luckily, the police took the knife until they complete their investigation. Hopefully, no one is allowed to use anything real of this sort again.
No arrests were made.
