Dad records 'ghost' in deserted playground

A man and his three kids were left shocked after a swing started moving erratically all on its own.
Scotty Denton had been taking his children to a playground in Warwick, Rhode Island last month when they discovered that one of the swings there had taken on a life of its own.

Despite the almost complete lack of wind and with the other swings barely moving at all, the large blue swing in the otherwise deserted playground was rocking erratically back and forth and side to side without any sign of slowing down.

"We're in the playground and the kids don't want to go anymore because look at this," said Denton. "This is real, look at this. There's nobody on it, there's no wind."

The video, which was originally posted on Facebook, has so far accumulated over 4.5 million views.

Could something paranormal be at work or is there a more rational explanation ? You decide.

I saw the smaller seat swing to the right of the larger swing sway in the breeze. Obvious this is an overreaction.

She's a little kid. They get amazed/frightened at just about anything, my mom used to babysit little kids, they would get awed every time they saw something new or unexplainable. That's kinda how kids are.

Having not seen the video(the replies do it enough justice), your expecting wind noise through the window of a car? Depending on the angle of the car to the wind would determine the amount of wind noise heard. Regardless of the wind being sporadic, the swing is a suspended weight and carries momentum. Just because the wind is not a constant force, doesn't mean the swing will move in relation to the wind. Blow onto any suspended weight and it will continue to move with or without force on it. It will eventually stop of course but the wind rarely stops so the swing will move at a relatively co... [More]

People please- just take a moment and watch again, paying particular attention to some of the bushes in the background. The wind is not just blowing, it's blowing pretty hard! So the assertion from the Dad that "there is no wind" is totally false. It's just aerodynamics. There was a similar swing phenomenon at a park near where I grew up. Only one swing would swing, but it only occurred when the wind was "just right." And the swing in this video is a different shape and size than the others, so it has different aerodynamic properties. I understand that people really really want to believe that... [More]
