This morning, there is a lot of buzz around a Google Street View Image that shows a woman giving birth to a baby. The photo, which was apparently taken in the German suburb of Wilmersdorf, exactly outside No. 37 Hubertusallee, Berlin, looks like it was snapped by one of Google’s camera cars. It’s doing the rounds of Twitter and Facebook right now.
A man cradles a newborn baby in his hands beside a car which has been parked hurriedly on the street with its door open.
Google German tweeted that it was fake: “Bei der angeblichen Geburt auf Street View, die hier gerade die Runde macht, handelt es sich um ein Fake!”
Here’s the real Streetview picture of No. 37 Hubertusallee, Berlin. It’s blurred out, the portion where the individuals were are still visibile in this blurred image. So Google didn’t blur this out after the fact.
