Truck driver photographs 'ghost' in tunnel

An image taken from the cab of a lorry shows what looks like a dark figure walking in to a tunnel.
Truck driver Stephen Smyth and his colleague George Furst managed to capture the eerie image while driving through a road tunnel in Cork, Ireland.

"I couldn't believe my eyes," said Furst. "It looked like an old man wearing an old tweed coat."

"It was quite freaky the way the figure is clearly in front of where my lorry drove only seconds later so it can't be a human being, or I would have hit them," Furst added.

"In fact, we must have driven right through him just after the picture was taken."

While both men believe that the entity could be the spirit of a man who drowned in a nearby river, critics have argued that the figure on the image could simply be a reflection in the truck's window.

Basically, we should all give up posting pictures on UM. Everything can be faked.

Agreed that anything can in fact be manipulated with graphic programs. EXIF data can be reintroduced into any image. We must keep in mind that evidence is subjective and with the plethora of so called proof it's commonly numbing. I've had several occasions where auditory messages indicate they are not radio frequency interference. I've studied, observed and had interesting results. There are plenty of skeptics here willing and able to satisfy their belief system entirely through the readings of online studies but that doesn't occur in all cases to be truth. I agree that many so called cases ar... [More]

I don't think this was faked at all. I just think it's a reflection in his windscreen. Exactly what I think too. It is reflections on the windscreen and someone has made it into a story. That's been done throughout history only now there are a lot more props to work with.

but also photo shopped. That's the convenient excuse that all the skeptics come out with.
