Did you ever wake up startled after hearing the sounds in your house or apartment, like those of creepy ghost recordings? Well, on October 1, 2017, CCTV security footage at Deerpark Christian Brothers School (CBS) in Cork City, Ireland, revealed that a ghost was tearing up the hallway of the school building. With no person or entity in sight, school administrators were left stunned and without an explanation for what was seen on the footage. Could it be paranormal activity?
While many skeptics demand that a reasonable explanation exists, the principal and deputy principal of the school have denied any participation in trying to create a ghost hoax of any kind. Furthermore, the footage caught the invisible paranormal being on the weekend at 3:00 AM, when no students were present at the premises. With Halloween near, and no one claiming responsibility, students at the school are naturally uneasy. No longer do the students of Deerpark CBS fear pop quizzes - they have more significant conerns that transcend our world.
The Deerpark CBS administration reviewed surveillance footage from October 1, 2017, at 3:00 AM. The footage apparently caught a ghost or some other spirit having what looks like a temper tantrum in the hallway of the school. While the administration does not claim to believe in ghosts, they are without explanation for the strange occurrences. The footage has been shared on social media and viewed over 500,000 times.
The Internet has a slew of theories regarding the Deerpark CBS ghost video. Some sources indicate that the violence toward furniture points to a poltergeist type of a spirit. More sketical viewers think a thin wire is involved, used to flip the "wet floor" sign and yank open the locker door. It's not too far-fetched to think that a savvy student or teacher could have set up an elaborate hoax.
On October 29, 2017, Deerpark CBS is holding an event at their school for Halloween. The event is called "Fearpark." It involves a haunted house and other spooky attractions. The proximity of time between the creepy CCTV footage to Fearpark has led some skeptics to believe it is just too convenient. The Deerpark CBS Principal, Kevin Barry, told Independent.IE, "We can't explain the footage, but we invite people to make up their own minds on Sunday, October 29" at Fearpark.
Since the event, after-school activity attendance has gone down. The administration has also noted less students crowding the hallways, with nearly no one using the girls bathroom near the hall where the ghost went into a rage in the video. It seems even the students are weary of the potentially haunted hallway.
