Was a baby in Texas involved in a horrible car accident and is he currently fighting for his life so he needs likes and prayers? No, that's not true: in September 2019 someone made a Facebook post with photos from a 2016 accident lifted from a Twitter account and got almost 6,000 shares, close to 3,000 reactions and over a hundred comments on it. But the baby is fine and has been home since October 2016.
This baby was involved in a horrible car accident and is fighting for his life
Can you please like and say a prayer please don't ignore
This is the Facebook post in question:
The photos seem to have been taken from this tweet (archived here):
God is truly amazing... I'm so thankful that they are both alive 🙏🏽 still praying for baby Emree but I know God has our back no matter what pic.twitter.com/j8wVamNGvO-- La Jefa 😈 (@CalanBerry) October 19, 2016
The baby appears to be the cousin of the woman running the Twitter account (tweet archived here):
Thanks for all the prayers 🙏🏽 my baby cousin is still not in the clear tho he has only opened his eyes once since the accident 😞 pic.twitter.com/fjuGyRcbER-- La Jefa 😈 (@CalanBerry) October 19, 2016
In subsequent tweets she kept her followers up to date on the status of little Emree:
Emree is awake 🤗💙 thank all y'all so much for the prayers 🙏🏽 he never fails pic.twitter.com/JEJXsyVaiZ-- La Jefa 😈 (@CalanBerry) October 19, 2016
Update: Emree's left side is twitching and he is semi drooling so they think he is having seizures 🙏🏽 please continue to keep him in prayer pic.twitter.com/WxUldUIk0q-- La Jefa 😈 (@CalanBerry) October 20, 2016
Fortunately it all ended well (tweet archived here):
It is unclear why someone from Chicago, Illinois (according to her Facebook profile) would post old pictures taken by someone in Texas in 2016 and request likes and prayers on it.
