Call it spooky, superstition, or spooky superstition, but Jon and Lindsay McHale call the ghostly appearance of what looks like a loved one’s face in their baby’s sonogram a miracle.
Ultrasounds have given many parents an incredible view of their children while they’re still in the womb. The technology has even saved lives, as in the case of one couple, who decided against an abortion after their own sonogram showed their unborn child smiling in the womb. They can also be a bit unearthly, as the McHales’ story shows.
The Mirror on Tuesday carried the tale of the mysterious 4D sonogram of Madison McHale, daughter of Jon and Lindsay. The Sidcup, London, couple went in for a regular checkup while Lindsay was still pregnant with Madison. They didn’t notice anything when they first looked at it, but Jon’s mother was convinced she saw something supernatural.
“We didn’t see it at first,” Jon told the Mirror, “but my mum was in the hospital with us, and she said she had seen it on the screen.”
Jon’s mother said the two should take the video home and watch it, and that’s when they saw it.
