A woman who had been running in a park in Singapore captured something rather strange on camera.
Pasir Ris Park - and in particular its Sungei Api Api swamp area - is certainly no stranger to the unexplained thanks to stories of pontianaks - a type of female vampire in the local folklore.
In this particular case, a woman named Umairah had been out running in the park one evening when she noticed what appeared to be a long-haired woman sitting alone on a bench in the dark.
"Why was there a woman just sitting by herself ?" she wrote on Facebook. "She was just staring at the lake. That area was very dark. Very dark. And no one else was around."
Thinking this strange, she snapped a photograph and carried on running. As she did so, she recalled hearing someone utter her name, almost like a whisper in her ear, even though nobody was there.
"I had goosebumps and the hair on the back of my neck stood," she wrote. "I know it wasn't a human because there was no one else around."
When she later posted her photograph and story on Facebook, other users noted that the strange woman did not appear to have any legs or feet - the area beneath the bench was empty.
Could she have simply been sitting cross-legged, or is there a more paranormal explanation ?
