‘Soul’ Of Dead Hospital Patient Pictured Leaving Her Body

An ethereal shape 'sits up' from the still form and trails quickly from the room

In an occasional series of dubious, grainy video clips that purportedly show ghostly going-ons, we bring you this latest viral wonder.

Posted to YouTube, there is little back story other than the claim it is CCTV footage from a hospital in China and apparently shows the lifeless body of a woman on a single bed, with a sheet draped over her.

The black and white clip – which has been viewed more than 100,000 times – then sees an ethereal shape “sit up” from the still form and trail quickly from the room.

The footage is apparently from a hospital in China 

An ensuing debate has naturally followed over whether the clip actually shows the soul of a dead woman leaving her earthly form or is simply a demonstration of some sketchy computer software skills.

Some viewers of a more faith-based persuasion have viewed the clip in the context of their own impending deaths.

“This video would offer a real shock for the materialists. What you see… makes you want to pray for your own soul to have a beautiful future after the death,” said one viewer on Tuko.

Others, like MeatVision, have reacted with horror: “Oh my god! That scale animation, that transparency, horrible video composition. This is fake as f**k.”
