Glass from McDonald's Hamburger Injures Fla. Deputy Fri Jul 11, 9:57 AM ET
TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - Two police officers were hospitalized on Thursday after one found broken glass in his hamburger at a McDonald's restaurant in Tampa, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.
The two deputies had stopped at the McDonald's for dinner.
One deputy began bleeding from his mouth and found shards of broken glass under the bun of his hamburger, a spokesman for the sheriff's office told reporters. He was in stable condition at a Tampa hospital.
The other deputy, who also ate a hamburger, was taken to the same hospital for examination. It was not clear if he had ingested glass. He was listed in good condition.
The restaurant was closed and deputies questioned employees to try to
determine how the glass got into the hamburgers.
