The story, which was previously covered to highlight the preciousness of spending time with family, was unable to be verified and has been deemed fake. WORLD OF BUZZ had tried to contact the original author of the story for further confirmation on facts previously, but was unable to obtain any response from the original author of the post.
If you missed the story, here’s a screenshot of the post that went viral on social media.
This post garnered a lot of sympathy from netizens initially with many sharing their pity for a man who allegedly passed away.
Likely facing heat after this investigation, the lady has since removed her post and made her profile private.
