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.
