Ghost hunter claims angry ghost 'whooshed through him'

A paranormal investigator was left with what he described as a 'paranormal hangover' after the incident.
Tony Ferguson and his wife had been investigating Fort Widley near Portsmouth, England - a reportedly haunted facility built 150 years ago - on October 16th when the encounter happened.

Designed to protect the city from attack, the structure saw use during both world wars before eventually being turned into an equestrian center in the 1990s.

It also serves as a popular destination for paranormal investigators.

Deep beneath the ground in the fort's old coal tunnels, Tony recalls calling out into the gloom in the hope of receiving a response: "Anyone need help? Are you lost? Are you trapped?"

To his surprise, someone or something did respond.

"In reply I repeatedly heard, 'Get out, leave!'," he said.

"I heard both a man's and a woman's voice. They really didn't want anybody there."

"Then, suddenly, at the end of the tunnel, I saw a mass of fog shooting down towards me. It lit up. I started to retreat, running back down the tunnel - managing somehow to turn around..."
"Then I felt a whooshing sound when the spirit went past and I could feel it go straight through me."

"Afterwards, I felt completely drained for the next few days. It was like a paranormal hangover."

Tony maintains that he has always been something of a "magnet" for ghosts, having had numerous paranormal experiences throughout his life. Even as a child, he recalls encountering a ghost in his grandmother's kitchen when he was only 3 years old.

"It used to happen often when I was left alone," he said. "My grandmother would go off and do something and the figure would appear."

"He would walk into the room and I would start crying as I was scared."

"He looked like someone from the 1900s and we reckon now it was my granddad's dad."

Assuming spirits exist, how could they possibly produce the sound of their voice without vocal cords? And if they somehow did find a way to manage it, why do so many say 'get out' and nothing else? My explanation for this would be... The more a viewer's spine tingles, the more they will watch a program. Hence the reason why ghost hunters, when faking ghost communications, have them say things that are sinister in nature. 'Get out' is a lot more frightening than 'Have a nice day!" I mean seriously. Who would watch a show with polite, sweet-natured ghosts?

The speakers on your computer, phone, TV, etc, don't have vocal cords.   They are often "low spirits", trapped in a hell of their own making. Not the kind of people you would wish to meet in real life.

That's a false equivalence.

Paranormal 30 %, hoax 30%, natural phenomena 30%.

You know what, I completely agree with you as far as the TV thing goes. There is reason why we're constantly hearing bad news on the TV even though there also thousands of really heartwarming stories going on at the same time. It's because heartwarming is nice but things that make you fearful keep you watching. It's the same with paranormal shows, they'll always show you these really creepy over the top things. Legitimately that's one of the reasons why I hate them. They will happily stage things if they know it will get them views. Because that's the whole point. Keep. People. Watching. Get t... [More]

It?s strange to read this because if you fine tune you?re senses you will figure out we walk through spirits of the dead on a daily basis. It?s common to have that cold chili and rush feeling when it happens. The voices and whoosh sound are another story. I?m pretty sure that could cause you to change underwear.

I am a believer that paranormal investigations can be hazardous to your health. Energies and drainages and lingering and etcetera can be involved. I would have liked to hear and see the video but I'm not sure it was supplied with the article (I lose patience with those user-unfriendly web sites designed to make money). I would like to hear the voices telling him to 'get out'.
