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.
