A sad story about a family grieving the loss of their child and finding comfort in a strange photo.
A Moore tornado family is finding comfort in a picture. Their son died in Plaza Towers when the storm hit, but they believe they’ve seen him since his death and they are not alone.
It looked like a regular picture of a little girl with a sparkler, but Scott McCabe saw the real firework immediately.
“Nicolas loved the Fourth of July and he loved firecrackers,” McCabe explained.
This past July 4th, Nicolas’ cousin, Madison, had to play alone – at least that was what the family thought until a cell phone picture.
McCabe said he sees two distinct figures in the photo with different skin tones and different facial features. He believes it is Nicolas behind Madison.
McCabe said he has numerous skeptics and several people have doubted what he sees, explaining that the picture is just a blurry image of a girl or too much motion for a cell phone to handle. He said none of that matters.
“They can say what they want. I believe. I believe he’s watching over us,” McCabe said.
You see what you want to see. They’re grieving their son. It’s understandable these people want to believe he is still with them in some way.
But I have to side with the skeptics on this one. The cell phone camera wasn’t able to properly process the image of a moving figure. Hence the blurry quality. This type of image is common with a slow shutter speed as happened in this dark setting.
