It’s actually true, society runs on emotions and beliefs, not facts and figures. Just 3 days ago a video was viral which claimed fake currency caught being printed in Bangladesh which was false, it wasn’t currency at all, you can see here which panicked many and so did this viral video where a huge lighting pillar fell on Kids performing on a stage in Max Muller High School in Bangalore.
The message making rounds on WhatsApp along with the video reads –
“So sad to inform 9 children’s Dead 3 were sever Injured on Dance Floor(stage) In Banglore School Annual Day Celebrations. Be careful we shoud not depend on Co-operate School or any school. We have to warn or inform to school staff. Pls spread these News to all Parent’s Ur’s SARVESH….”
Although the accident is unfortunate but the information is wrong.
1. This is not recent, it happened in February 2016 i.e approx 2 years ago
2. No one died, Media houses said 8 were Injured.
Wrong Ones –
