Scott Denton says he and his family saw a real life poltergeist.

“The kids didn’t want to get out of the truck, they were all nervous,” he told Inside Edition.

Denton posted the video of “Ghost Swing” on social media on June 28 and it has been seen over 6 million times.

In the 1-minute-24-second video, the father said: "We’re at the playground, and the kids don’t want to go anymore because look at this s***." 

“I recorded the whole event, the kids started to freak out, I got goosebumps on my neck,” he admitted to Inside Edition.

Skeptics weighed in with comments like "the ghost is usually called wind" and "the other swings are moving, it’s the wind" but Denton says that's not possible.

In his video, the other swings are barely moving.

“The kids noticed that the swing was doing its own thing and it wasn’t windy out,” he said. “I do believe in ghosts, I choose not to involve myself with ghost activity.”

The father said that the so-called haunted swing is “authentic” and “nothing has been manipulated, it’s the real deal.”
