This story seems to have gone viral at the moment. The first place I saw it was Rense.com.

GLP have a current thread running on it where you can see the photo.

Any thoughts from anyone?

I don't believe it's a demon but I messed around with it for a bit on my photo editing software and couldn't really get it much clearer.

It's just a variety of things that happen to line up. The patient's leg, bed rails, and a coat or something hung up in the background. Here I've highlighted the various parts. When you see what they are (particularly the leg and the rail) it's pretty obvious.

Start with the leg. The person is laying in the bed with their left leg bent. All you can see is the left leg.



Here's just the bed and patient isolated:

I don't understand why the legs are upright like someone is standing on the bed..where is the rest of the body?

It's one leg with the knee bent. Looks like two legs. But one is the thigh, the other is the tibia of the same leg.

Ok I see it now. At first I thought it was two legs but now I see the "leg" that looks like it doesn't have a foot is actually the same leg, like you said.

Once you've seen the 'demon' it's hard not to see it. I covered the upper body of the demon with my hand to make it easier

You can get these kinds of optical illusions even with relatively clear photographs. I've just happened across a bunch of them over at:

This is a good one... small guy in blue shirt piggyback riding.

A few of the others on that site REALLY make you do a double take.

The moment you pointed out the patient's leg it became very clear to me.

So, it didn't seem to bother anyone that our demon appears to have a comedically gigantic right shoulder?

(oh, wait, maybe that's why he was in the hospital…to get a second opinion on it…)

lol I was more bothered that his legs weren't attached to his torso

I used the HDR setting on Picassa and got this:

But Mick, yeah, I think it's an optical illusion as it were too. Thanks for your response.
Hmm... has anyone else noticed that 'Skull' within the mirror ???? It is most noticeable in the pic Emeline posted..
