Columbus, OH — A young boy was rushed to the hospital after a needle at a northwest side movie theater apparently stuck him. The incident occurred at the Cinemark Movies 12, located at 2520 Bethel Road on Sunday, September 4, 2011, reported 10tv.com.

Police officials reported that a writing pen with the ink cartridge removed and replaced with a sewing needle was left between the movie theater seats. The child leaned over to talk to his parents when he was stuck in the back.
