This incident happened to me while I was working with Palo Verdi Imaging in Indio California back in 1987 /1988.
Our clinic was in an old building that has a physiotherapy department, the doctors had moved to a new building and they rented the clinic to my boss who then opened a general and vascular ultrasound clinic.
I was living in Indio California at that time. We had many undocumented Mexican immigrants and they use to pay cash for their ultrasound services.
One day I was working alone in the clinic as the second sonographer was away, an old Mexican lady came with her daughter to do a fetal ultrasound fr her pregnant daughter and see the child, in that time we didn’t have 3D or 4D imagine but we can show them the baby and give them Polaroid pictures on thermal prints.
The patient was sent by a nearby medical clinic to check for viability, the baby was 14 weeks at that time , While I was doing the ultrasounds Scanning I noticed that the baby had very faint heartbeats , and his heart beats was less than 50 beats per minutes (Bradycardia), there was lots of amniotic fluid/polyhydramnios and by the time I did the scan and all other measurements the baby heart stooped completely, and went to fetal demise, its very rare to see the heart stop while doing the ultrasound scan , and this is only case I had in my scanning Currier , the baby heart stopped at the end of the exam.
I had documented the heart beats on the Doppler /M-mode and put it on VHS video to show that there were no heartbeats. The patient was sad and starts crying along with the grandmother. The husband was supportive and understanding and he took them back to the doctor clinic nearby. Later in that day, the grandmother passed away on the same day with massive stroke. I was informed by our Mexican clerks who have connections with that family. I was very saddened by the news.
One week passed and while I was opening the clinic early in the morning I started feeling uneasy I felt someone watching me especially when I go to my ultrasound room, when I move and go to the other rooms I feel OK. I thought it could be an anxiety attack or some EMF effects that can do this. But the ultrasound machines were the same and the rooms are the same and there were no extra wiring or extra machines in them.
A few days later I hared a crying sound that was exactly the same crying the grandmother gave while she was in the ultrasound room, that really scared me despite I been throw allot of paranormal incidents in my life. The crying was of someone lost something or asking why this is happening.
The sound of crying grandmother and sadness made me so sad, I remember that I asked whoever was in the room with me, how can I help you ? is there is anything that I can do? but all that I felt is a gush of wind from the room back to end of the clinic where was the window toward the back yard and the desert.
I used to tell the Mexican clerk about this as she was a Catholic and she believes in spirit so we used to pray around the rooms when we don’t have patients.
A few weeks later the sound weeping grandmother came back again in my ultrasound And I felt a prescience in the chair where the grandmother sat while she was alive watching the baby scan. It was scary moments for me sitting alone in the ultrasound room knowing that there is a spirit of an old lady watching my every move.
I remember that I had the baby ultrasound scan on a VHS with me, in that time we used VHS to record the scan. I put the VHS in the VCR slot of the ultrasound machine, and played back the part where the baby was a life and increased the sound volume so I can hear some heartbeats, and started saying is this what you want to see, this is the baby, he is in God hands now and I am sorry for both of you , I pay for both of you and your doughtier and her husband are doing fine now and trusting in God to have another child , I am so sorry I was really sad for her and started to pray in my room . I told this spirit to trust in God as you are a Catholic with faith, please trust that God will take care of her and you.
I felt the room a bit lighter and the spirit moved to the back of the clinic as I felt a brush of a hand over my shoulder a very gentle touch and the entity moved toward the door and way out.
I told Angela our clerk to say what I said in English but in Spanish, so the spirit understands, she also called one of her relatives who did some cleansing to the place as we didn’t want to scare the patients or tell the manager who lives in close by town. After the cleansing, everything settled down. We also put a Mezuzah in front of each door.
I have asked the clerk why we don’t go to the grandmother grave and do some prayers but she said her body was taken back to Mexico and buried near her relatives.
The clinic was closed down as the other sonographer went to work with the hospital and I took a job in BC –Canada.I really know that there is another world besides ours and that some times those feelings, energy, entities, and spirits do want to finish a task or seek truth and understanding or tell us something, Those crises spirits will try to reach out or find out the what was happening. I am lucky that I am one of those who can feel them when they are around I don’t know why or how?
