An Ohio woman thought she was being funny when she photographed her baby granddaughter with duct tape on her face and lying in a roasting pan – but Facebook users who saw the images disagreed.
The grandmother, Jackie Sheaks, of Columbus, Ohio, set off a firestorm online that drew the attention of the local sheriff’s office when she shared the prank photos of her granddaughter.
In one of the images, the child’s pacifier had been secured to her cheeks with two pieces of duct tape. In another, the infant is resting inside a large turkey roasting pan next to some potatoes.
Mrs Sheaks explained this week that she uploaded the snapshots online hoping to amuse her Facebook friends.
‘It started as just a joke,’ she told 10TV. ‘We put a little tape on the pacifier because we were being silly.’
