A woman has gone viral online after sharing a photo of something she thought was a Handmaid (from TV show The Handmaid's Tale) in danger.

At first glance it seems the handmaid is on top of a tall building, staring off into the distance. Noticing this, the person called the police just to be safe...

When the police arrived they realised it wasn't a person dressed up at all - but simply an umbrella that resembled a Handmaid from a distance!

The photo has proved a hit online, with hundreds of thousands of likes. One person even called it "the best thing they'd ever seen".
