Google Maps’ terrifying ghost children leave users scared – find them this Halloween
To quote the X-Files, “The truth is out there”.
Well, in fact, the truth just might be on Google Maps for everyone to see.
There has been an overabundance of images found on Google Maps with spooky figures found by keen-eyed ghost hunters – but there’s just something even more haunting about a child’s mind.
Some believe that demons often masquerade as children during hauntings to trick people into believing their innocence, but Street View enthusiasts seem to side with these with caution.
The Daily Star delved into the claims of Google Maps viewers who seem to have found macabre children on the app – and some of the images are enough to keep you awake past witch hour this Halloween.
“Proof of the afterlife”
An image of what some believe to be the “ghost of a young boy” crouching next to a house has been called “proof from the afterlife” by fans of Google Maps.
The alleged apparition was captured in a house that was for sale in the city of Asheville, North Carolina, USA.
Some viewers said he appeared to be looking at the camera while playing with a small car.
The photo was revealed by a Twitter account with the username Anna Nicole’s Revenge to which users replied: “It gave me chills. Makes you think there might be life after death.”
Another added: “It seems ghosts exist.”
“Strange misshapen figure”
Redditor Uatarreu posted the eerie screenshot of the street view on the online Google Maps forum Shenanigans, showing a Sao Paulo building carved in a ghostly shape staring at passers-by.
The short, dark figure with spooky ghostly arms and eye holes is reminiscent of famous ghost sightings of the past.
The photo was taken eleven years ago in the seaside suburb of Mongaguá, south of Brazil’s largest city.
Poster Uatarreu wrote: “Guys, I think I found a real ghost.”
