On that weekend in January, CNYGH founder Stacey Jones and several members of the group went to the hotel on an overnight stay for what they thought would be a routine investigation. They had no idea what they were in for.
Enter a realm of fear and paranormal.
This blog is all about the paranormal and anything creepypasta
The Bedside Watcher
- Paranormal Photos
- Here are three video stills, from an IR surveilance/monitoring camera, located in a hospital. Two of the three images show what looks to be a misty, child-like, human figure standing to the side of a hospital bed.
One of these video stills shows the figure almost perched on the railings, looking down at the patient. The other looks as though it is making contact with the person’s forehead.
These images proved quite popular a few years ago, when they started making the rounds through social media and although it is great that people show an interest, what it has done is caused a bit of a mix up with the story relating to the photos.
In a good example of ‘social media chinese whispers’, with each posting of the image the story has been changed, so that now, when trying to find information, you will stumble across quite a few variants.
However, there are three main variants that are talked about the most:
The first does not give a place for the hospital/medical center, but tells us it was part of a sleep analysis experiment. The man in the bed had been suffering from waking dreams, that involved people coming through his bedroom walls in an attempt to get to him.
These terrors were so bad that his waking life was suffering, as he was being severely sleep deprived due to an anxiety of going to bed. It was during the experiments to monitor him and determine what was happening in his brain during these waking nightmares, that the cameras picked up the images.
Was the ‘ghost’ one of the people who would attack him in his ‘waking dreams’?
The second places the hospital in Osaka, Japan. The person in the bed is an elderly person who was soon to pass away. No explanation is given as for why there was a monitoring camera set up.
It was at a time just before death that the image was captured. Many speculated that maybe it was one of their close relatives coming to help them make the crossing to the other side, or maybe it was their own spirit taking one last look at their body before leaving it behind.
The final story places the location as a children’s hospital. The person in the bed is a young boy who was terminally ill. He had been battling with illness for a long time, and the night the footage was taken was the first night of many he would spend in the hospital under care, before he finally lost his fight.
Although this image was captured a long time before he died, many believe that it is perhaps a guardian angel, a friendly spirit who would look over the sick children in the hospital.
Then of course maybe it was not a spirit at all but something else… dust or an insect etc on the lens?
What do you think?

Ghost Photographed on a Canadian Oil Rig?
When you’re a ghost, there really isn’t much to do. Sure you can haunt people or maybe throw stuff around in a store, but that all requires work. Instead, I suggest photobombing. It’s easy because all you have to do is appear in a photo, and that’s it. That’s what one ghost in Alberta, Canada decided to do. The photo (bottom one) snapped at an oil rig on an unspecified date and was apparently taken for the ‘Nadors (an oil, natural gas and geothermal company based in Bermuda) ‘89 calendar’, which was made for the people who worked at that specific oil rig. The photo appears normal, but supposedly the ghostly figure of a man can be seen standing at the top of the stairs (the top photo is a zoomed in and enhanced version of the bottom one). It wasn’t until the photo was printed that someone noticed the strange figure. It’s believed that it’s the ghost of a man who had died not long before the photo was taken.
I had to stare at the photo for a minute before I actually saw the ghost, and I agree that this does look like a ghost, but is it really a ghost. People have been theorizing that this ‘ghost’ isn’t there, and we’re just experiencing “pareidolia”, which is a physiological phenomenon where we make out things such as faces and animals in random places. One example of “pareidolia” is the infamous “Face on Mars” which was a giant formation on Mars that resembled a human face, but was later debunked. That’s what people think is happening in this picture, and I agree that that’s the most plausible explanation. The face of the ghost is probably either a sign or another window and the body is probably just a dark/shadowy part of the area atop the stairs. That, or this could’ve been Photoshopped. Either way, I just don’t think this shows a real ghost. But what do you think? Does this photo show a real ghost, or are we just experiencing “pareidolia”?

Rosalia Lombardo died of pneumonia at the age of two in Palermo, Sicily on December 6th, 1920. She is the best preserved child in the world and she was embalmed by the country’s best embalmer, Alfredo Salafia.
Urban legend has it that Rosalia opens her eyes every now and then. Most of the time, it was brushed off as just a rumor, until someone set up a camera and discovered this.
