By Andrew FaganAUSTIN (Reuters) – An electric massager, with an electric-shoe vibe, has been found in a Texas home, a local hospital said on Friday, and authorities are investigating.
The massager was found at the home of a Dallas woman on Friday by an employee who visited the home after she went to a nearby nursing home, the Dallas County Health and Human Services Office said in a statement.
“The employee reported the massager to a resident who visited her at home and the resident brought the massage to the facility,” the statement said.
The employee said the massaged her shoulder and back, which is a normal part of a massage, and asked her to go to the restroom.
The employee then returned to the home and found the massagers there, the statement added.
“Because the massaging occurred during a patient visit, the nurse reported the incident to the hospital.
The nurse immediately called the Dallas Fire-Rescue dispatch center and the incident was investigated,” the agency said.”
At this time, it is not clear if the incident is connected to the massages being conducted at the nursing home,” it added.
A Texas state official, who declined to be identified because the investigation was ongoing, said on Twitter that the massageman was found by a home health aide at a nursing home.
