United States

A strange case occurred in the state of Ohio (USA). A camera mounted above the doorbell captured a strange, ghostly figure moving rapidly through the night. A nearby police officer observed the figure with his own eyes. This is reported by the "Daily Star".

The baffled law enforcement official thought he was imagining things when he saw a "ghost girl"running down the street. The smart door lock camera automatically triggered and recorded this phenomenon.

The video shows a dark, translucent figure rushing along the sidewalk at high speed. Since it was dark all around, it was almost impossible to see the "runner".

Shortly before that, at 10:40, the police received a call from a concerned resident who reported that a child of about seven years old was running around on the street unaccompanied by an adult.

The police officer who arrived at the scene noted that the ghostly object ran too fast, which is not at all like a child. When he disappeared from sight, the policeman went to look for him, but did not find him.

According to the official version, the police officer observed a very fast running girl. However, skeptics do not agree with this version and believe that the police officer really saw something paranormal, but could not do anything.

Experts believe that in fact, the video recorded a running man, and the camera just did not have time to focus. However, they believe that this video should be studied more carefully.

The Network also heard a version that the camera recorded an ordinary plastic bag, driven by the wind.

Original news

A police officer was left baffled when he thought he saw a "ghost" girl running down a street and a smart doorbell caught a similar shadowy figure on camera.

In the clip, recorded in Mentor, Ohio, a dark shape scuttles along the pavement at what looks like a considerable speed.

The cop noted the object was running "too quickly for a child" and vanished without a trace when he went to look for the so-called girl, WKYC reports.

He said: "I was surprised by what I saw, the person appeared to be a small child, running rather erect and too quickly for a child."

Discussing the chilling incident on its Facebook page, Mentor Ohio Paranormal Research Society appeared to be on the fence.

It wrote: "We had a bunch of people ask us what we thought about the new video that has been released of a possible ghost in our city being spotted on a doorbell camera.

The object is moving at a steady pace but the surroundings are dark and it is difficult to see it clearly.

Police had arrived at the scene at 10.40 pm following a call from a concerned resident who said they had spotted a child estimated to be seven years old running around in the area alone.
