Sharks on the freeway, the Statue of Liberty being swallowed up by gigantic waves, a statue of Ronald McDonald floating inside a flooded Virginia Beach restaurant — all made headlines on social media during last year’s Hurricane Sandy, none of these jaw-dropping images were true.

Neither was the photo of three soldiers standing next to the Tomb of the Unknowns as torrential rains fell from the sky.

The image was shared more than 53,000 times and liked more than 43,000 times on Facebook during last year’s natural disaster. Thousands of people looking for a bright spot in the news, left uplifting comments on the post.

NPR, The Washington Post, Internet magazine Slate and others re-posted the photo not knowing that the image was taken months prior to Hurricane Sandy. All posted corrections when they realized how gullible they were.
