When you are monitoring social media for interesting stories to bring to your readers and followers, then you see a lot of different ‘stuff’.
But sometimes even we are caught off-guard but some of the bizarre images and videos which we see.
And this is no exception.
When our highly complicated and sophisticated software informed us about an image that was getting a lot of shares, we thought that it was worthy of a closer look.
The image appeared to show someone strapped to the back of a vehicle whilst being seated on an ‘electric chair’.
Immediately, we thought ‘wtaf’ and went directly to the page that shared the image.
‘Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Dept’ shared the image with the following caption:
‘Please do NOT strap your loved one’s power chairs to your hitch haulers with them still on it.
‘Poor Marjorie was already terrified by the time we got her husband Fred to pull over after a solid 4 minutes of lights and sirens as he kept waving us to go around him.
‘I know it can save time to leave your loved one strapped in their chair, but it is definitely not safe. Thank you for your attention to this matter’.
The image was shared over 50k times and had attracted 4.5k comments.
But a closer look at the page itself revealed it to be a parody account.
Ok, so the page isn’t a ‘real’ police one. But that still leaves the mystery behind the photo unsolved.
Was someone really being transported around the country whilst still being sat on their electric chair under a blanket!?
