The "ghosted hand" the guy thinks is there is the lady's frizzed hair in front of him. Or some pocket or stitching on his jacket. Regardless, whatever it is, it doesn't match up to any clone of the source hand above. And the image doesn't appear to have any differential compression artifacts that might accumulate over repeat saves in that kind of doctoring situation.

Furthermore, looking at the metadata, it is by the original photographer David Green who appears to have first uploaded it to facebook.

Or even more simply, his posture doesn't suggest he has any kind of weight on his back, as a backpack would.
