Twitter is looking for the people who took a happy Notre Dame photo right before the fire
Brooke Windsor captured the moment a man joyfully picked up the child and swung her around by the arms.
“I took this photo as we were leaving #NotreDame about an hour before it caught on fire. I almost went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had. Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this,” Windsor tweeted.
Windsor wrote that she debated interrupting the sweet moment to share the photo with them but ultimately decided not to. Windsor’s decision is one she has come to regret. About an hour after the photo was taken, the Notre Dame was engulfed by flames, causing significant damage to the Catholic cathedral and its historic gothic architecture.
Windsor wrote that she does not know if the man and girl are related but assumed they were based on their “dynamic.” She also said the photo was taken at 5:57pm CET.
She later gave an update to say that she has not yet found the people in the photo but remains hopeful.
The photo made its rounds on Twitter, racking up 413,000 likes by the time of writing. Hopefully, the photo will find a way to its happy subjects.
