A half-mile stretch of Ocean Beach near Golden Gate Park was closed Sunday after about 300 used hypodermic syringes washed ashore after apparently being stuffed in wine bottles and thrown into the Pacific. At least one magnum-sized bottle filled with plastic syringes with needles was recovered and individual syringes were found in the sand in a foot-by-foot search Sunday by U.S. Park Service Police.
