TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (FTN) – A Terre Haute toddler picked more than just books at the Vigo County Public Library on Tuesday.
The incident happens just before noon at the main branch of the library near 7th and Poplar Streets.
According to witnesses, they observed one-year-old Alexander Essex picking his nose in the playroom.
The child’s mother was shocked…his father thought it was funny.
“I didn’t even know I got a picture of it at first, I was just taking snapshots of him playing,” Chris, the toddler’s father said. “I thought it was pretty funny.”
His mother was singing a different tune.
“It’s just gross. Next thing you know he will be eating it,” Ami said while shuttering.
We have reached out to someone who volunteers at the library.
So far, we haven’t received a comment.
