A petrified mum has recorded spooky footage of a dark figure in her house during a video chat with her friend – which she claims is the ghost of teenage boy. Mum-of-four Lori Simmons was speaking to her friend Shana Thomas on an app which records video calls when a dark figure appears to pop in and out of the frame behind her.
Lori admits her ‘heart stopped’ when she replayed the eerie footage back.
Lori believes the figure to be the ghost of a ‘prankster’ teenage boy – but is also open to the idea of it being an alien.
The 47-year-old from Yakima, Washington, USA, said she had just woken up and was chatting with her best friend on the app Marco Polo – but was left horrified.
The store manager said: “I’d only just moved into my apartment, so I was video chatting with my friend to show her around and I was just talking about general things. It was nothing out of the ordinary.
“We were using an app called Marco Polo, which is like a video walkie talkie. You can hit the start button to record, and others can watch you in real time like a regular video call. You can then replay it.
“But all of a sudden, her face got really serious and she asked if someone was in the house with me.
“I live alone but I instantly looked around because it was so weird the way she said it and it really frightened me.
“I told her I was home alone. She looked pretty shocked and told me to watch my video again to see what I thought. She said it was like someone was following me around the house.”
he added: “So I watched it, and my heart jumped into my throat. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
“It was so scary. It sent chills down my spine, and just shocked me so much.
“I’ve had lots of paranormal experiences in my life, but nothing quite like this.
“I’ve only cried twice in my entire life from things that I’ve seen, but this did make me cry.”
