Daughter Frightens Mom With Photo from the Grand Canyon

Daughter Frightens Mom With Photo from the Grand Canyon

Is technology making us into a generation of overprotective parents? Samantha Busch seems to think so. The 22-year-old scared her mother, Rebecca, to tears while on a recent trip to the Grand Canyon with her boyfriend. Busch's mother had been worried about her daughter going on such a dangerous trip and was tracking her through the GPS on her phone, which bothered Samantha. So she turned off her phone's GPS and sent her mother a camera photo of what looks like her falling off a cliff and crying for help.

Samantha's boyfriend took the photo at just the right angle to make it look like she was falling, even though she was actually on a secure ledge so that she could send the photo to her mom and give her a scare. She posted the photo on Reddit and it went viral. Needless to say, the elder Busch was not as amused as Reddit readers were.
