France Terror Attack: Facebook Activates Safety Check Tool

An 8-month-old baby was reunited with her family after becoming separated amid the chaos of the Bastille Day attack in Nice that left at last 84 people dead.

Facebook users anxious about friends who may be near a crisis zone can also visit the safety check page to see a list of any friends in the area, and find out which ones have checked in as safe. "Thank you Lord! with such a disgusting night it is such a miracle that through all the sharing on Facebook he was found".

Ms Banner said other members of her family were in hospital and added: 'I pray for my family and all the families of the victims'.

Banner thanked the woman and everyone involved in a follow-up post.

Less than two weeks later, Facebook activated Safety Check feature for users after a suicide attack that killed 45 people at Istanbul's Ataturk airport.

The parents reportedly lost their pram during the disorder that followed the moment a lorry drove into a crowd during Bastille celebrations in Nice.

The hashtag #PrayForNice quickly started trending on Twitter following the attack as the world learned of yet another tragedy, which Christian Estrosi, the president of the region, called "the worst tragedy in the history of Nice". He was identified as a 31-year-old Frenchman of Tunisian descent.

The Facebook page SOS Nice was created to help with finding missing people after the attack.

Many others went to Facebook to search for missing loved ones, many of whom were young children and teenagers.
