CCTV footage recording a busy road captured the moment a woman’s soul leaped from her body following a fatal accident.
The video was posted to YouTube September 17 and has been seen nearly 400,000 times.
The footage revealed a busy street where cars and motorcycles carefully avoided colliding with each other as they made turns into what appears to be a parking lot.
As a blue truck slowly eases its way into the road, a woman on a motorcycle zooms by and clips the front bumper.
She is immediately thrown from her bike, which tears to pieces, flies against a pole and lands on the motorcycle on the side of the road.
The truck comes to a complete stop after entering the entrance of the parking lot as an eerie image of what appears to be a woman in a black dress appears just above the woman’s broken body.
The passenger steps from the truck and a man holding a sign joins the passenger as they rush to the fallen woman.
More witnesses run up to her and stand around the body, seemingly unable to detect the shadowy figure, which appears to be a confused woman.
The shadow flickers then fades to nothing as witnesses begin to panic.
What was the shadowy figure?
Some believe it was the woman’s soul, thrown from her body when she died.
Rather than ascending straight to the afterlife, her confused soul remains behind long enough to understand it is no longer attached to a living body so it accepts its fate and moves on.
Others are much more skeptical.
The sudden appearance of the ghostly apparition led critics to believe it was an edited tape.
Users commented the tragedy was disrespectful to the woman and her family while others believe the figure is evidence of human souls.
Local reports named the girl as Manee, who died at the scene, and a man named Bonjongrat suffered serious injuries, though how he came to be hurt remains unverified.
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
