‘Ghost doctor’ spotted stalking the corridors of abandoned hospital

Once a proud medical institution, Poole Hospital sanatorium originally opened in 1932 and shut its doors in 1989

Visit: Can you see “a man dressed in all white” at the end of the hallway?

Is this the figure of a ghost stalking the corridors of an abandoned hospital?

Taken in the 1990s, the picture of a deserted sanatorium is enough to send a shiver down your spine.

After the pictures of Poole Hospital were published in the Gazette, readers claimed they could see “a man dressed in all white” who looks like a doctor at the end of the hallway.

Posting on Facebook, Jo Griffiths said: “Just looked through the photos and on picture 20 it looks like a man dressed all in white at the end of the corridor!”

And others soon agreed, with Jo Savage replying: “Spooky”, while Brad Allen said: “I’m convinced.”

Bob Murray added: “Was spooky, few experiences. After Poole was closed Cleveland Police used Grey Towers for dog training.

“No dog would go into the chapel would not go past the door the police handler could not believe it.”

And Keith Shorten said: “I done security up there on permanent nights when it closed down and believe me I did not look forward to my shifts.”

The main building was demolished around 2002 for housing. Grey Towers Hall has now been converted in to flats.

Online supernatural figure, cited in relation to a number of real-life incidents, is heading to the big screen

A movie based on the mythical online figure Slender Man is reportedly on the way.

The meme, which originated in 2009, centres on a supernatural character who abducts and stalks others, especially children. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sony division Screen Gems is set to produce the film, with the script by David Birke, whose credits include Paul Verhoeven’s upcoming thriller Elle.

The figure originated on website Something Awful as part of a Photoshop contest. Eric Knudsen submitted images of a man with long arms and featureless face, and the character spawned a mythology and various games as well as a low-budget film in 2013. TV shows such as Supernatural and Law and Order have also used the character as inspiration.

In 2014, Slender Man also made headlines when the character was connected to a number of real life incidents. In Wisconsin, two 12-year-old girls stabbed a classmate to allegedly please the character, while later that year a 14-year-old girl set her house on fire, with her family inside, citing a similar motivation.

News of a film follows rumours that the next series of American Horror Story will also focus on the character, while a HBO documentary called Beware the Slenderman recently premiered at SXSW.

How a 15-year-old discovered an ancient city

What was your biggest achievement at the age of 15? Well, a Canadian teenager may have outshone the experts after discovering a lost Mayan city. William Gadoury, from Saint-Jean-de-Matha, Quebec, made the discovery by comparing star charts with satellite images. The new city, discovered in a Mexican jungle, is thought to be the fourth biggest Mayan city, and has been named ‘Mouth of Fire’ by the teenager.

William has been fascinated by the Mayans for much of his childhood, ever since a Mayan calendar predicting the 2012 apocalypse sparked his interest.

His hobby eventually turned into serious research. The imaginative youngster theorised that the locations of Mayan cities might correspond to stars in Mayan constellations. He analysed 22 Mayan star maps from ancient books (known as the Madrid Codex), and overlaid the star positions onto Google Earth images of the Yucatan Peninsula. He was able to show that the 117 Mayan cities did indeed match the star positions, with the brightest stars representing more major cities.

William then overlaid a 23rd constellation, finding a discrepancy; three stars but only two known ancient cities. The location corresponding to the third star was on the Mexico-Belize border. But the as-yet undiscovered city was covered in thick vegetation, making his findings inconclusive.

Thankfully, the teenager had a close relationship with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) – he had won a science competition a year earlier for his theory – and they had already been providing him with images from their RADARSAT-2 satellite, which has cutting-edge terrain mapping abilities. They gave him images of the new location.

He also scoured the internet for other satellite images from 2005, when a fire had engulfed the area leaving it more exposed – and any remains more visible.

Armed with his images, he then collaborated with Remote Sensing expert Dr. Armand Larocque from the University of New Brunswick. By studying the satellite images and applying digital image processing a fascinating discovery was made; LaRocque concluded that the 15 year old had found a major city with 30 buildings and an 86 metre pyramid.

His findings have been met with widespread praise, with scientists from the Canadian Space Agency describing his work as ‘exceptional’. They also presented him with a medal of merit.

William named the city K’ÀAK ‘CHI’ which means Mouth of Fire.

So what next for William? He plans to go to the International Science Fair in Brazil in 2017 to present his findings. He also hopes that archaeologists will visit the site very soon. On the possibility of an archaeological dig, Rocque is realistic, telling The Montreal Journal “It’s always about money. An expedition’s costs are horribly expensive”.

Regardless, William’s legacy will almost certainly be etched into history. According to reports, the findings are soon to be published in a scientific journal, and it is thought that methods similar to his could lead to the discovery of more lost Mayan Cities.

Update: Since publication of this article some other experts have expressed scepticism at William’s findings. Dr. David Stuart, an anthropologist from The Mesoamerica Center, University of Texas posted a response on Facebook claiming ‘ancient Maya didn’t plot their ancient cities according to constellations’. Stuart – an expert on the Maya Civilisation – described the square feature as an ‘old fallow cornfield’.
