Woman Captures 'Ghost Servant' On Snapchat

Get ready to shit your pants - what we have here is 100 percent, irrefutable PROOF that ghosts not only exist, but haunt some of the US's favourite tourist attractions.

Danielle Hyde, 21, and Savanna Brown, 23, were visiting Tyron Palace in North Carolina when they captured the spooky image of a female servant walking past:

Naturally, a servant died there in the 18th century. You know how these ghost sightings work by now.

Filmed and shared on Snapchat, the footage shows the ghostly figure, which looks to be in period costume, carrying a basket. Spooky.

Danielle said: "The palace is actually known for being haunted. There was a fire there in 1798 and I believe it started where the servants used to live.

"It was like she was see-through. You couldn't see her back at all as it was mostly out of the picture. Her silhouette wasn't very detailed, you can't make out the colour of her hair for example.


"It's hard to tell but I think she was a younger woman and she was wearing what looked like a servant's dress and carrying a basket. I think because of how old the building was and the history, it did feel eerie.

"We were just going around on the tour and listening to the guide. I wasn't trying to capture anything specific but showing the surroundings.


"I only noticed the ghostly figure in the background when my cousin messaged me, saying: 'Is that a ghost?'''

As is often the case with such supernatural encounters, Danielle didn't notice anything amiss with the footage until a week after she filmed it. When she watched it back and saw the figure, she researched the palace and found out about the tragic fire, which started in the basement, but ended up engulfing most of the building way back in 1798.

Danielle added: "I hadn't noticed her whilst I was in the room, it was only when I went back to look over the video that I saw her. I didn't really think anything of it because I've had ghostly things happen to me before, like hearing footsteps on the stairs or paintings falling off walls with being knocked. Little things like that.

"Nonetheless, people don't typically capture this stuff on camera. When we were down in the cellar it was freezing, yet the windows weren't open and it was hot outside."

On closer inspection, it's almost definitely a member of staff in an olde-timey costume, isn't it? Which is a shame, because I want to believe, but I do think when someone does finally find that 100 percent, irrefutable proof, it will be on Snapchat.
