Mom leaves “baby” in car while she shops at Target – promises others that he’s OK

These days, it seems as though you can hardly move in public without running the risk of being discovered online.

We have truly entered the era of viral tales and clips, where funny, awkward, and occasionally extremely personal movies and images of ourselves can be published and shared instantly over the internet.

Of course, this can be exploited, but it can also occasionally be used for good; consider the instances in which people are called out for wrongdoing.

I think that’s what people on the internet thought was going on when an Instagram picture went viral in early March, supposedly showing a message written by a mother who had left her infant in the car to go shopping at Target.

Sufficient to halt the heart, surely? There’s more to this story than meets the eye, so don’t worry.

Influencer Bonnie Engle posted a reel on Instagram back in March, and it quickly went viral. The video has received millions of views and over 1,000 comments since it was posted.

The aforementioned video features a close-up of a handwritten message that has been taped inside a car window and says, “My baby is OK.” He’s got his drink and his nibbles! I’m in Target right now. Return soon!

It goes without saying that for many of the people who watched the video, the note alone was enough to startle.

However, many who were willing to watch the film quickly realized that Engle is more of a mischievous spouse than a terrible mother. The camera pans back a few seconds after the previously described close-up on the message in the window, exposing that Engle’s baby in the car is actually her husband.

“Please no judgment,” is how the influencer captioned the Instagram video. He is secure and in good health.
