An image captured in a baby scan has been claimed to be the ‘double’ of Michael Jackson.
Parents-to-be Dawn Kelley and William Hickman were looking at the ultrasound scan of their unborn baby when they realised it looked like the late pop singer.
Mr Hickman, 29, a window cleaner, said: “I showed my daughter Ami, who’s six, and she saw it straight away, so I thought ‘well if she can see it too it’s not just me seeing things’.”
Mother-of-six Miss Kelley, 34, went for her 20-week scan at Sunderland Royal as normal last month, but doctors could not see the foetus’s stomach or diaphragm.
A few weeks later she was sent to Grindon Lane Walk in Centre for a closer look.
The more powerful scanner there is normally used to examine internal organs so the images it produces much more detailed.
Mr Hickman said: “We were looking at the pictures again, and I just saw Jacko there.
“None of us are really Michael Jackson fans. I mean I like him, but we’re not crazy about him or anything.”
