Atlanta, GA (AP) - A Georgia woman is suing a downtown Atlanta hotel
after she says her 4-year-old grandson contracted herpes from a
used condom found in their hotel room bed sheets last year.

The lawsuit was filed by the boy's grandmother, Carmen Jones,
and seeks damages from Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, as well as
Crescent Hotels and Resorts and the hotel's manager. The family's
attorney, Thomas F. Jones, said the boy has suffered from lesions
in his mouth, vomiting and fevers since the August 2010 incident.

Jones said the grandmother came out of the shower and found the
boy with the condom in his mouth, attempting to blow it up. Jones
said the boy has been diagnosed with herpes.

Evy Apostolatos, spokeswoman for the New Jersey-based Wyndham,
declined comment because the lawsuit is pending.

The property has since been closed and sold.

    I have a friend who has herpes, but has outbreaks very often. No wonder why more and more sexy girls and guys join the largest STD dating site STDslove. com to look for dating and support. My friend who found his wife on STDslove told me that this site is created by plenty of fish and it now has more than 650,000 members. Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don't even know that they have them.

    I presume the police are sure the condom wasn't used by the grandmother?

    To supervision: The kid was on the bed INSIDE the hotel room while his grandmother was INSIDE the same hotel room in the bathroom taking a shower. You've obviously missed the real issue here which is the hotel cleaning crew not doing their jobs thoroughly which has put people's health and lives at risk.

    supervision, you should read and comprehend the story before you start putting up comments. It said that the grandmother came out of the bathroom and saw the boy with it. Do you take your kids and grandkids into the bathroom with you when you go to use it?? if you do, you are once sick person.
