The good thing about baby monitors is that it captures everything your little one does, but for this couple, the baby monitor did capture more than that…
Mum-of-four Laura Haigh, from Devon, in southwest England, and her partner Dean Evans, have shared a creepy encounter that was captured on their baby monitor while their 18-month-old son, Sebastian was sleeping.
The couple told The Sun that they saw what looks like a ghost baby, appearing to wave objects around Sebastian’s room and snuggle up next to him in his cot.
Mr Evans then raced upstairs, expecting to find his son cuddled up next to a teddy bear, but found the little boy sleeping alone in an empty cot, while the unexplained spirit-like figure was still on the monitor.
The video that was time-stamped at 9.21 on June 8 showed that the ghostly shape even moved positions within the four hours it remained beside Sebastian as he napped.
“[Dean] was a little bit gobsmacked that there was nothing there, but it was still appearing on the monitor,” Ms Haigh said.
“He was a bit spooked as he doesn’t believe in that kind of thing and just can’t explain it,” she said, adding she checked the camera and found nothing wrong with it.
The couple said that the figure only left at feeding time.
Despite this, Ms Haigh said that the potential paranormal experience hasn’t bothered her that much, because Sebastian didn’t seem upset by the “visitor.”
