Kerri Frey Liles, of Texas, said she was on a flight from Baltimore to Houston with her son AAsher, who has Down syndrome, when he became a little afraid of turbulence.
“I was taking a picture of the cloud and when he saw the phone out, he took the phone from me and started taking pictures, she says; I thought maybe it would take his mind of the turbulence.
Liles said 7-year-old began taking hundreds of photos of the clouds, but it wasn’t until later that the mom realized just what he’d captured.
“I was like I need to go through and delete some photos,” Liles said. “I am going through the photos and then I was like, ‘Woah, what is that?’ He couldn’t tell me what he thought it was. He is non-verbal.”
The image looked like a cloud in the shape of a man with his hands raised.
