LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP — Officials here said Monday that a man pricked himself with a small, half-inch, home-generated insulin needle tip at the 25th Street beach in the Spray Beach section of the township.

Timothy J. Hilferty, director of the Long Beach Island Health Department, said the man pricked himself with the needle when he scraped the sand with his foot Sunday.

Hilferty said in a news release that township police were notified and medical treatment was provided to the man.

Floatable debris may result from combined sewer overflow systems or from the shorelines in the New York, New Jersey harbor areas during storms, Hilferty said.

Hilferty added that officials at the state Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Health and Senior Services were notified about the incident.

Anyone who sees waste washing ashore should contact the DEP at 1-877-WARNDEP or the Environmental Crimes Hotline at 609-571-5798.
