A MOTHER faces an anxious wait after stepping on a used hypodermic needle at a Queensland beach.
The woman was at Burleigh Heads beach with her husband and children, who were working as volunteer lifesavers, when she stood on the needle on Sunday afternoon.
She was taken to hospital for blood tests but may not know the results for months.
It is the second needle-related accident in the area in three weeks after a four-year-old girl trod on one at nearby Currumbin beach late last year.
Fingers crossed for good results and that she doesn’t have to wait too long!
