Photos appearing to show a baby buried in shopping cart go viral

SOUTH WILLIAMSON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Photos taken by a customer in a Walmart in South Williamson went viral on social media after appearing to show a baby buried under merchandise at the bottom of a shopping cart.

The Pike County Sheriff’s Office says investigators were able to identify the woman pushing the cart after looking at store security camera video.

Deputies say representatives from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services went to the woman’s home to investigate.  The woman’s name wasn’t released.

It is still unclear if it was a baby in the cart or a doll or something else, but there is an official investigation underway, according to authorities.
