Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A Utah mother shared a photo of her infant son using American Sign Language to call for help while sitting on Santa's lap.

Kerry Spencer tweeted a photo that she said depicts her son, Samuel, sitting on Santa Claus' lap a few years ago.

Spencer said Samuel was 1-year-old at the time and was starting to learn ASL when he signed "Help" from St. Nick's lap.

The mother said she didn't realize the baby was calling for help until she saw the photo.

"The poor guy didn't love Santa very much," she told KABC-TV. "We didn't try to take him to go much after that."

She said the photo only made its way to Twitter this year, but it has long been a source of family joy.

"We all laugh at the photo now," Spencer said. "Posting it to Facebook is one of our favorite family traditions."
