After helping his daughter take her very first bath, he posted the photo below online showcasing the funny expression she was making. What he didn’t know what that a random commenter saved her life!
Thousands of people thought the photo was adorable and funny, but one man wrote the following:
“Are her eyes a little yellow? It looks like it to me, but it’s hard to tell, because the entire photo is a little yellow. It’s probably nothing, but it could be a symptom for neonatal jaundice. If her skin and eyes actually look a little yellow, then maybe you should get it checked out. I’m a paranoid children’s doctor, hence my concern.”
Not one to take a chance on his little baby’s health, he rushed her to the hospital. The random stranger was right, his little girl had jaundice! Jaundice can be common in small children, but if left untreated, it can be potentially fatal.
