A mother in Alaska was shocked to find razor blades glued to a slide at their local playground moments before her 3-year-old daughter slid down.
Alarming Discovery in a Tranquil Park
A tranquil day at Anchorage’s Schroeder Park took a nightmarish turn when Felicia Pope and her family visited the children’s playground.
Not Your Typical Visit to the Park
While parents typically anticipate joyful laughter and carefree moments at the park, Felicia’s visit on October 8, 2023, unveiled a shocking and potentially life-threatening danger.
Close Call on the Slide
Felicia Pope, along with her 3-year-old daughter Abigail and husband, was enjoying a leisurely day at Schroeder Park.
Their idyllic family outing took an unimaginable twist when Felicia made a startling discovery at the children’s slide.
Something Shocking on the Slide
As Abigail prepared to gleefully slide down the play structure, Felicia Pope noticed something that sent shivers down her spine. Razor blades had been surreptitiously affixed to the slide.
A Mother’s Swift Response
In a heart-pounding instant, Felicia Pope’s maternal instincts kicked into overdrive. Realizing the imminent danger to her daughter, she sprinted towards the slide, determined to prevent a catastrophic incident.
‘I Ran as Fast as My Body Would Let Me Run’
“I ran as fast as my body would let me run — even faster,” Felicia later recounted. “And if you see the playground, I had to crawl underneath really quickly and jump back up and grab her. It all happened so quickly.”
A Chilling Design
The heart-stopping discovery sent shockwaves through the family. The placement shows malevolent intent behind the placement of razor blades on the slide.
The design, as she described it, seemed calculated to cause maximum harm.
‘It Was Designed to Harm’
“It was designed to catch a kid at max force with gravity working against them. It was designed to harm,” Felicia emphasized, her voice quivering with the realization of what could have transpired.
Understanding the seriousness of the situation, Felicia Pope’s husband swiftly dialed the local police to report the disturbing incident.
Anchorage law enforcement promptly launched an investigation into the vicious act.
Their Search Revealed Another Nightmare
As part of their inquiry, authorities scoured the playground area for additional razor blades.
Their search revealed a disturbing find: more razor blades near the staircase of the playground structure.
An Unsettling Turn of Events
The incident at Schroeder Park has left residents of Anchorage shaken.
In response, local authorities have heightened surveillance and vigilance at the park to safeguard the community, particularly the young park-goers.
A Family’s Quest for Safety
Felicia Pope’s family’s haunting encounter took an even darker tone when she shared their motivation for relocating to Anchorage.
Seeking refuge from crime, they had left the greater Philadelphia area to find a safer environment for their family.
Wanted to Get Back to the Old Way of Living
“We are from the East Coast, the greater Philadelphia area. I’ve never heard of anybody putting razor blades (on slides), but I have heard of children being killed by stray bullets,” Felicia reflected.
“We left that area and traveled 4,000 miles to the Last Frontier to get back to some old-fashioned ways of living.”
Anchorage police are leaving no stone unturned in their effort to identify those responsible for the dangerous act.
Although no one was harmed in this alarming episode, authorities are actively investigating the incident.
The potential charges would be limited to vandalism if the suspect is identified.
