A video showing a baby alone at a booth at an Ohio Chinese Restaurant created a social media outcry.
Shannon Culley of Sandusky, Ohio was eating at Chinese Dragon Buffet when he noticed a couple get up from their booth and leave the baby there. The clip claimed that the couple were gone for four minutes, and after being posted on Facebook received four million views. Culley never called the police, and just tried to shame the parents online.
The mother of the child claims she wasn’t that far away, and Culley framed the video to look like she wasn’t close-by. The video was removed from Facebook on Wednesday.
Police, meanwhile, were trying to determine whether the baby was in any imminent danger in the video. So far, no charges have been laid, but Erie County Children Services has opened an investigation.
