A South American woman says she’s scared to leave the house – after claiming she was pushed over by a GHOST.
Cecilia Carrasco, 34, had been walking past the reception desk at her lawyer’s office in the capital Santiago when she felt herself be shoved.
Bizarre CCTV footage appears to show her walking unawares past a counter, only to fall dramatically to the ground out of nowhere.
Cecilia, from Chile, said: ‘I wasn’t aware of anybody in front of me as I passed the reception desk talking to a girl, and as I looked towards the receptionist I suddenly felt two pairs of hands shove me over. I hit the floor but when I looked up I couldn’t see anybody, and I thought they probably had run off.
I hit the ground hard and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance. I was inside for three days and I’m still off work as a result of my injuries.
‘When the receptionist told me that there was nobody there, I didn’t believe them until they showed me the footage. Now I am convinced that it was a ghost because I felt the hands even though there was nobody around.’
She said she had never believed in ghosts and never expected that she would be at the centre of such a paranormal attack, that meant she was now frightened about going out of the house.
Cecilia added: ‘I remember seeing a film where a ghosts kept attacking a woman and now I’m worried the ghost might be after me. I have no idea why I was shoved over.’
The CCTV footage which was shown on a local TV report quickly became one of the most viewed items in her homeland.
Hospital staff confirmed the woman had head injuries conducive with her having fallen over or been pushed over.
Local parapsychologist Rodolfo Orozco said: ‘It certainly seems as if something supernatural happened here but in order to investigate it more, we would really need to look at the energy levels in the building, and so far we have not been invited to investigate by the owners.’
Doctors however are sceptical that it was ghosts saying that the woman had received a substantial blow to the head, and that could have caused confusion about the circumstances of her injury.
They were unable however to explain the video which appears to show her being shoved with some force backwards.
