Razor tool found in 4-year-old boy's McDonald's Happy Meal, dad says

A Wisconsin dad claims he discovered a dangerous surprise in his 4-year-old son's Happy Meal – a razor tool.

According to WISC-TV, Scot Dymond of Columbus said he spotted his son  with the tool, a scraper for cleaning grills, Sunday after his family bought food from a McDonald's drive-thru and returned home.

"He came running out, happy to have a toy," Dymond told WMTV. "I happened to see what it was, and I grabbed it from him."

Dymond called the restaurant's manager and Columbus police, who determined that the scraper likely fell into the bag from a shelf above, WMTV reported.
