The Story About A Boy Dying In Santa’s Arms Is FAKE [VIDEO]

Why would anyone do this?! I’m sure you saw on Facebook or the news the viral video of a professional Santa telling the heart-wrenching story of a sick boy dying in his arms at the hospital. If not, I’ll post it below. Unfortunately..? Not sure if that’s the right word to use because the tale involves an ailing child, but it’s fake!

60-year-old Eric Schmitt-Matzen made the whole thing up! Multiple news outlets began poking holes into it and attempted to fact-check. They came up empty-handed, Gizmodo reports. Ugh! The Knoxville News Sentinel, who originally posted the story, has retracted it. Wow.

Watch in disgust below.
