Footage of a 'haunted swing' emerges online

What is moving the swing ? Image Credit: YouTube / Manoranjan Bhadauria
A bizarre new video, which shows a swing vigorously moving on its own, has gone viral on social media.
The footage, which is from India, begins by showing the swing swaying back and forth while an identical swing next to it stays perfectly stationary - much to the surprise of the person filming.

Over the next few seconds the swing seems to settle down, however just before the video ends, it suddenly and inexplicable begins to move again, this time with more vigor than before.

The footage has proven particularly popular in India where users have blamed the phenomenon on a ghost. The term "Bhoot Jhoola" ( meaning spirit or demon swing ) has been widely referenced.

As things stand however, the authenticity of the footage remains unclear. It is quite possible that someone off-camera is manipulating the swing and that the whole thing is simply a hoax.

Either way, it's certainly an interesting video.

Many strange things occurring by natural reasons, we just don't comprehend them at first sight. So strange that only one moves !

Do you have a source for that? This one is in India apparently. Any cases with this violent motion especially towards the end. The trees show nothing more than perhaps the faintest of breeze.

This is so freaken scary. People still record vertically with their cameras instead of horizontal.

Maybe the ghost was a Swinger when he was alive...
