December 31, 2016
Spooky is the only way to describe what Jade Yates saw recently in her daughter’s room.
While checking in on her daughter Ruby via baby monitor one night, she saw something that looked like a ghost.
The apparition seemed to hover over the child for a few seconds, then disappear. Yates, who is from Perth, Australia, said the sighting freaked her out.
“Fare to say I won't be sleeping vary well tonight, who believes in goasts I didn't until about 5 mins ago, this is a video thru my baby monitor of ruby in bed but ruby is the white sleeping baby in the front top left of the cot, in her room with the door shut and know body else in there, well so I thought u make up Ur own Mind one freaked out mumma right hear,” she wrote on her Facebook account in January 2016.
According to the Sun, Yates said she didn’t think the alleged ghost was trying to harm her daughter. She thought it was a baby a little older than her daughter who just wanted to play.
People who have seen Yates’ grainy baby monitor feed footage are mixed about what they are actually seeing.
Some such as Tameka O'Shea definitely could see the ghost. “Omg ! There is 2 heads? Or 2 ghosts there that's so creepy I'm scared for you , and does ruby move when it go's over the top of her I couldn't quiet see said it was a ghost.”
Others such as Scruffyant, who commented on the Sun’s story about the mysterious appearance, said the ghost is explainable phenomenon.
“Well it's not a ghost as they don't exist,” the commenter said. “It's likely to be a hair or cobweb strand somewhere near the camera lens. Anyway, get you duster out love Im sure it'll all go away.”
