A personal trainer got the fright of his life when he filmed what he believes to be a ghost, lurking in the window of a castle in England.
Tony Ferguson, 33, at first believed he was the victim of a prank when he noticed something moving in the video he took while at Hurst Castle in Hampshire on Sept. 8.
“I didn’t see the figure until I watched the footage back, but the whole time I was in the castle I felt something watching me,” he told Caters.
In the footage, it appeared there was a figure moving in a window, but Ferguson said no one would have been able to fit in that space.
“My immediate reaction was to try to debunk it and find out if it could have just been a person but that window is connected to another window by a tunnel,” he said. “The tunnel is so narrow you could barely fit a [pool stick] down it so it’s impossible for a person to be down there.”
Ferguson said he believed the figure to be a spirit of a former castle caretaker, whom he encountered during a previous visit to the castle.
“Last time I visited, it appeared like a white mist but this time it obviously had the energy to actually take form,” Ferguson said. “I was asking it to show itself and this white mist flew straight at my camera. You can see it almost reaching out like a hand.”
Though it’s believed the spirit is not happy to have visitors, Ferguson was grateful to have had two separate experiences at the castle.
“I’m really glad I made the effort to go back, it feels like it was meant to be,” he said.
