ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department reported Saturday that a photo post on Facebook that has gone viral, accusing a South Georgia father of child abuse in a Walmart, is not true.
Police call the post misleading.
Investigators said they looked at footage from inside the store, and the footage did not show a case of child abuse.
Instead, investigators reported that a father caught a little girl while falling from a shopping cart, and her mother picked her up to comfort her.
APD also said the person who originally posted the photo apologized to the family.
