What happens when you take a picture with a prize catch after fishing and post it for everyone to admire but people who see it are abuzz about the sinister apparition behind you? Fisherman Wayne Foulkes reeled in a 16-pound carp at Ponciau Pool in Wrexham, Wales. But an evil-looking, orange-glowing ghostly visage appears to be peering through woods behind him in Foulkes' celebratory picture.
He had been fishing all day when he caught the fish. As he proudly held it up, his friends took the photo at Ponciau Pool in Wrexham, Wales on May 9. Foukes was surprised to find the orange being peeking out behind him. But the area has a history that could potentially explain any ghostly presence.
Ponciau councillor Paul Pemberton noted that the pool has a "grim past," so he wasn't shocked at the ghostly presence, according to METRO. Suicide notes have allegedly been found in the area, according to Express. And Pemberton stated the following.
"I couldn't believe it when I saw it but it is a 100 per cent genuine photo and you can definitely see eyes, nose, teeth and a whole face in the background. Even in my lifetime, I know there have been a couple of suicides in that water and it really does have a grim past....In the last 30 years, there was one guy who lost his life there and another lad called Owen who is believed to have committed suicide there too. But it's a mystery as that place is in the middle of the village and is surrounded by houses and this is the first report we have had of any ghosts there. It's certainly brought a smile to people in the village and I'm sure we might get the Ghostbusters around soon."
"I'm a big lad so I wasn't spooked by it, if I'm logical then there is a bungalow right behind the trees there and it's probably that. It was my friend who noticed it first after he came down to take the picture and the first time I saw it I was like 'what the h*** is that in the background?'"
Is it real or is it photo shopped? What do you think? Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost? Please leave your comments below.
