Now what exactly would a ghost want with a wheelchair?
I suppose those of us still in the land of the living will have to wait for the answer to that question. In the meantime, strange headlines are dancing around this week about a possible spectral saboteur taking off with a wheelchair from a medical and research institute in Chandigarh, India.
Through the exit and down the slope it goes, rolling as though some ghostly force were pushing it along.
The entire event was captured on the hospital’s security cameras, with multiple angles, and at least one security guard was at the scene (walking through the doors at about 0:53).
After witnessing the video for themselves, a few hospital employees weren’t too keen on returning for any more night shifts, or so reports say.
The security guard in the video, Manoj Kumar, eventually retrieved the wheelchair from its final resting place, and said simply that it was all “just wind, nothing else.” However, he also claimed to have been “feeling very cold” at the time, which some speculate may be evidence of a nearby ghostly entity. Ghosts, after all, are said to cause cold spots.
Of course, it could also just be the wind.
One doctor at the hospital looked at the footage and also felt its movement was due to the wind. “It rolled on the smooth floor and went out,” she said, “It was just wind and not any ghost.”
Many viewers agree with this perfectly natural explanation. Others, however, remain skeptical of the skeptics. Perhaps a recently deceased spirit was having difficulties coping with the afterlife, and needed to sit down for a bit.
