While filming a live segment about a haunted house located in Hanover, Pa., a CNN reporter claimed that an evil entity attacked her and one of the crew members.
This was no ordinary spook, and it was more than hearing a strange noise in the house. The Examiner called attention to the event that occurred last summer, as the chilling video has resurfaced and the Pennsylvania family is still being haunted by unidentified apparitions inhabiting their property.
Reporter Katie Kyros said that she and her crew members were reportedly scratched and then pushed down the stairs.
The CNN reporters were in the middle of an interview with homeowner Deanna Simpson when Kyros' photojournalist Nick started feeling a burning sensation in his arm, according to The Examiner.
When Kyros examined Nick's arm, she found red marks and scratches, and admitted that during the interview she was "touched and pinched."
Simpson revealed that the reporters weren't the only ones who experienced the mysterious touches. She said that it has happened to her and her husband, as well as friends. Before Nick revealed what had happened to him, Simpson already knew, and said that the spirits harmed the reporters because they were there to expose and tell the story.
"That is their way of a warning, because you're putting it out there," Simpson said.
The crew members also saw strange lights cast on the walls and heard noises before even going into the basement.
Simpson believes that there are multiple negative spirits residing in her home, and because of her unrest, she placed a camera in the basement with hopes to catch the evil entity. The camera is equipped with a motion sensor feature, and it picked up a shadowy figure that she claims to have seen before.
She showed the photo of the nearly 7-foot shadow to Kyros and her crew, and explained that she will have difficulty selling the house because of the demon that she thinks is attached to the home.
"When it came on me, I couldn't breathe, I couldn't scream, I couldn't move," Simpson told CNN of the black figure.
The homeowner has also witnessed other strange sightings, including a creepy black hand near one of the bedrooms upstairs. While the crew was there, they allegedly filmed the basement door closing by itself upon Simpson's command.
"If that is you, would you please shut that door?" she asked, and within one second, it closed.
The family has tried multiple ways - mediums, paranormal investigators and priests - to rid the house of evil, but nothing has worked. They have lived in the home for seven years, and Simpson said her daughters refuse to stay there.
Simpson believes that a series of "grisly deaths" occurred in her home, and she wants to prove to people what her family encounters on a daily basis.
