Video shows guard 'being attacked by a ghost'

Something definitely befell the guard, but what was it ? Image Credit: Jose Manuel Rios Morales
A Colombian mayor has posted up a video featuring bizarre footage of an alleged paranormal attack.
In a clip posted up on his Facebook page, Jose Manuel Rios Morales, who is the mayor of Armenia, shared footage of a security guard who was allegedly attacked by an invisible entity.

Sure enough, the grainy black-and-white clip does appear to show something strange going on.

In the video, the guard can be seen suddenly throwing himself against a wall before falling to the ground and crawling backwards, all while seemingly being harangued by an unseen assailant.

Apparantly convinced of the supernatural nature of the guard's ordeal, Morales has since called for a little bit of divine intervention to help remove any malicious forces from the area.
"I want to give everyone a little peace of mind and let them know that, in the company of the Bishop and other religious leaders, we will bring God's blessing to every corner of this workplace," he said.

"We ask for respect and a union in prayer, and we assure you that nothing can steal our peace and tranquillity because we are protected by the hand of our Lord."

But was the guard actually being attacked by a ghost or is there another explanation ?

You can check out the clip for yourself below.

Help me out, all the videos are the same as the one NY Post used. Where's the version with readable time stamp? I can see seconds changing but not during the whole footage.  Also, it seems like awful lot of publicity and trouble for the mayor, just to cover up for one drunk guard. Since when are drunk night guards unusual anyway...

The others don't have the NY post logo at the beginning, where he falls. The timestamp is never readable 100% of the time but you can see enough of it to know it's been tampered with.

I see. I thought there's something more complete and more readable someone compared this one to, to show it was sped up. Because all I can see it was cut, my guess is to skip to the interesting parts.  I'm not saying you couldn't be right, even if the speed wasn't tampered with, guy didn't have to be drunk, he could have been on drugs etc. It's not a problem to imagine several very non-paranormal scenarios that could be the actual story behind the ghost story. The involved know, I can only guess.  What makes me think there's something interesting going on is all the drama complete with the ble... [More]

There is too much of lateral movement for someone just tripping. It looks if there is a strong force involved. It could also be enacted.

After seeing the movie "The Invisible Man"  we used to do this all the time.  My brother and I would pretend we were being beat up by an invisible assailant. We'd throw ourselves about being careful to always land on the couch or a bed.  We would add sound effects like fists connecting with a stomach or chin with the appropriate groans of pain.  It was great fun.  This guard is just suffering from arrested development.

I agree with the majority.  Staged hoax.   With video speed slowed, you can see that he 'lunges' himself into , what looks like, a  locker door.   Then 'acts' the part of being assaulted by ghosts.  No haunting there.

Hard to see much of what is going on because he's wearing white and there is glare.  Could be he is saying he was pushed, but the video doesn't prove it.
