Real or fake? Ghostly photo mesmerizes social media
Real or fake? That’s the big question surrounding the latest social media buzz – a photograph posted by a man who says he witnessed the scene of a fatal motorcycle accident from afar, snapped a quick picture, and noticed, while looking at it and posting on Facebook, a shadowy whitish figure hovering above an emergency response official’s head.
Saul Vazquez of Mount Sterling, Kentucky, posted this to his Facebook page, alongside the photo: “I took this picture just few minutes ago from the cab of my truck it was an accident between Campton and Stanton on the service road just off of the mountain parkway, zoom in and pay attention to the shadow just off the top of the state trooper hat. All I say is I hope everyone involved is okay!!”
The crash victim was taken to the hospital, but later died, the Palm Beach Post reported.
Vazquez told LEX 18 he snapped the photo from the bed of his truck, while driving past the scene, and assures the photograph’s not been tampered with in any way.
His post has been shared more than 8,700 times. And most comments show individuals appear to believe the photo is genuine.
“That’s crazy wild,” wrote one.
“That is freaky,” wrote another.
“Wow, brother that’s amazing,” said another.
And yet another: “I think there’s a person that passed away is watching his looking down on his own body.”
Vazquez interacted with some of the posters, saying he “pulled over, roll[ed down] the passenger side window and snap[ped] the picture.”
Officials said to LEX 18 the crash only involved the motorcyclist.
After that, another poster asked: “Wow. Have you seen how many shares???”
