Viral Story About Child Dying In Santa’s Arms May Be False.

Remember the story that went viral earlier this week about a man who plays Santa during the holidays, he was called to a hospital late one night to grant a dying child’s wish to see Santa one last time. Santa came, and the child died in his arms just moments later. The story was a real tearjerker…but it may not be true.

According to New York Post, “The Knoxville News Sentinel said it could not verify various details from Eric Schmitt-Matzen’s tale of having a 5-year-old boy die in his arms about six weeks ago.

“Since publication, the News Sentinel has done additional investigation in an attempt to independently verify Schmitt-Matzen’s account. This has proven unsuccessful,” the News Sentinel staff wrote in a memo posted on its site Wednesday afternoon.”

We hope his story is true…
