An image showing a woman holding a gun to a baby’s head has gone viral. Today we take a look at the photo to determine if it is real or not.
The source and veracity are currently unknown.
Let’s take a look at the message circulating with the image.
SHARE – PLEASE ALL OVER THE INTERNET TILL WE FIND THIS CHILD AND WOMAN
I was sent this picture today by a friend who was very distressed to see it on her page.It apparently was posted to see if anybody could find the girl and if they cared well we do care and we have to find this baby as this scares the hell out of me
Speculation varies wildly regarding the source of the image. One theory is that the “woman” may actually be an adolescent sibling “joking” with a toy gun for the camera after giving her sister a bath. Others have suggested that the image may have been digitally altered. Un-cropped versions of the photo show a woman in the background who appears to be standing at a sink, which some have suggested could be the child’s mother or grandmother.
The image is believed to have originated in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but this has not been confirmed. The person who posted the photo above claims that authorities have been contacted and are investigating.
We will update with any new information.
