HAUNTED VHS-VCR in the ultrasound machine

 I was working with Palo Verde Imaging in Indio California back in 1987 /1989.

The place was an old building that has physiotherapy and the doctors moved to a new building and rented the place for my boss to open a general and vascular ultrasound clinic. Dr Bakist who lived in Palm desert California.

I was living in Indio California at that time. We had many undocumented Mexican immigrants, and they used to pay cash for their ultrasound services.

One day I was working alone as the second sonographer was away, an old Mexican lady came with her daughter to check for her daughter’s pregnancy and see the child, in that time we didn’t have 3D or 4D images but we could show them the baby and give them Polaroid pictures on thermal prints,And recorded the images on a VHS.

The patient was sent by a doctor to check for viability, the baby was 14 weeks at that time.

While I was doing the ultrasounds canning the baby had very faint heart and his heart beats was less than 50 beats per minutes, there was lots of amniotic fluid/polyhydramnios and by the time I did the scan and all other measurements the baby heart stopped completely and went to fetal demise, it’s very rare to happen while I do  the ultrasound and this is only case I had in my scanning Currier that the baby heart stop in the end of the exam.

So, I documented the heart beats on Doppler /m-mode and put it on a VHS video to show that there was no heartbeat. The patient was sad and started crying along with the grandmother. The husband was supportive and understanding and he took them back to the doctor clinic nearby.

Later that day, the grandmother passed away on the same day at night. As far I remembered she wasn’t ill.

I was informed by our Mexican clerks who have connections with that family. I was very saddened by the news.

One week later while I was opening the clinic early in the morning.

I started feeling uneasy and I felt someone watching me especially when I go to that ultrasound room, when I move and go to the other rooms-I feel OK. I thought it could be anxiety or some EMF effects that can do this effect. But the ultrasound machines were the same and the rooms were the same and there were no extra wiring or extra machines in them.

Few days later I heard a crying sound that was exactly the same crying the grandmother gave while she was in the ultrasound room, that really scared me despite the fact that I had been through alot of paranormal incidents in my life.

The sound of crying and sadness made me so sad and I remembered thatI turned my face to a different direction as I couldn’t see this entity, I said how can I help you?  Is there anything I can do to help you? But all that I felt is a gush of wind from the room back to the end of the clinic where the window toward the backyard and the desert was.

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.

Few weeks later the sound came back again when I was alone and just opened the clinic early. And I felt prescience in the chair where the grandmother was sitting watching the baby scan.

I remember that I had that VHS with me in that time so I put it back inside the VCR machine , and I only played back the part where the baby was a life and increased the sound volume so I can hear some heart beats, and started saying is this what you want to see pointing on the ultrasound screen where the images of the baby was still alive. The baby now is in God’s hands, with God, and I am sorry for both of you. I was sad with tears in my eyes to see that even a human spirit can cry.

I told this spirit to trust in God as you are a catholic with faith, please trust that God will take care of the baby . I felt the room a bit lighter, and the spirit moved to the back of the clinic again.

I told Angela, our clerk, to pray in that room in Spanish, so the spirit understands more. She also called one of her relatives who did some cleaning to the place as we didn’t want to scare the patients or tell the manager who lives close by town. After the cleansing everything settled down. 

I have asked the clerk why we don’t go to the grandmother’s grave and do some prayers, but she said her body was taken back to Mexico and buried near her relatives. I remembered I took that VHS to my apartment. I wanted to do a case study to publish it, but every time I played the VHS tape disturbances happened in my apartment. Shadows moving at the corners of my eyes, items pushed from the kitchen table to the floor, and when I turned off the VHS everything settled down.

I experienced the most horrific demonic haunting that I ever encountered, it all started by haunting my dreams just a few days after I brought that VHS to my place and inserted it into my TV VCR.

I don’t drink, smoke or take any drugs or alcohol. I am in the medical field, and I had no anxiety or stress. Things started to get worse as I could see shadows moving in the apartment, watching the window, pulling my bed sheet and a heavy intense feeling of being watched. Every time I watch that VCR, I didn’t know at the beginning that that VHS was. I reason and never thought that VHS can be possessed.  I brought the VHS because I recorded so many other cases , and as I said I want to do a case study .

I can record many cases in one VHS. At that time there were long and short VHS.

I didn’t know if it was an attachment or was it because the area was a newly built compound close to the desert that was part of native Indians in the past. But somehow I knew that the VHS was the reason because every time I slept and that tape was in the VCR the TV turned on by itself ,it is like some entity knows and wants to see the Tape. until one night a few weeks after the TV was on and the vhs clip was on the baby scan, then I knew . It must be the spirit of the grandmother.

I asked a friend of mine who used to work with us MR David Gonzales. He told me to burn the tape away from the apartment, so I burned the tape behind the clinic.Then I moved from my apartment.

Greeting from Calgary, Alberta - Canada. My name is Saad Al-Hashimi. Known as Steve Ramsey PhD, I am the founder and the director of the Paranormal zone- Haunting Dimensions. That deals with an investigation, debunking, and healing/cleansing since 1986. Having had many unexplainable experiences from a young age at a possible "haunted" house where plenty of things seemed to happen that I couldn’t explain, since that time and I am looking and searching for an answer. After continuing to have many experiences that I just cannot explain, I have since become a firm believer that GHOSTS do exist. I continued for a short while as a member of a few other paranormal groups until I was very fortunate to become involved with a local fast growing organization where I felt very comfortable to start my own paranormal investigation. My best experience has been Indio California, Okotoks Alberta, Baghdad city , and many other places in Greece and North Canada. (yes I do believe spirits can hurt you so you have to be careful not to provoke or challenge a spirit ). I won’t tell you the whole story now but you are more than welcome to ask me on a ghost hunt. I am now looking forward to meeting many more people, all looking for that ‘experience’ that could possibly convince them that there is something more to life than we first thought. So please feel free to email me drsteveramsey@gmail.com I have been involved in several paranormal groups over the years. Paranormal Adventures is different and exciting in ways I couldn’t possibly get before. When people ask if I believe in ghosts, I say I am a skeptical believer. I have had many encounters with spirit forms and believe what I have seen to be real and unexplainable. I always look for a normal mundane reason why at the same time. My area of expertise in the field of science. I have Ph.D. in Public Health from the USA, Master degree in Medical Ultrasound and BSc Degree in Diagnostic Imaging from Charles Sturt University Australia, BSc in Physics, and Radiology diploma from Iraq, Pharmacy diploma. Radiography diploma from London Ontario, Diploma in Natural Health from Quebec, Canada. Radiation physics from Australia, I studied the infra and ultrasound in the animal kingdom.P resented more than 20 lectures in Iraq, Greece, Germany, South Korea, Japan, Canada and I am the peer reviewer for the radiographer journal in UK, Netherlands, and South Africa. Earned the 3rd award for excellence in ultrasound - Canada 2005. I am also armature archaeologist, painter, calligrapher, and used to run acting theater play in Iraq- Baghdad, wrote, directed and acted in more than 27 plays. So debunking come naturally in my science and technology back round, and not like other debunking people around you who use Google for their search and call them self-debunkers, It doesn't work that way. In the near future, I will run live internet ghost hunts with night vision cameras giving users at home the chance to watch the spooky footage on, in my nights out. I look forward to seeing you all soon on one of our many events! I loved reading ghost stories and sitting on my own in the dark watching horror films. However. I Can decode dreams, and I see spirits in my dreams. I like to look at things from a scientific point of view and try to rule out all rational possibilities before concluding that events are paranormal. However, I do try to keep an open mind on all investigations. I started taking part in investigations since 1986; my first investigation usually any house, apartment that I move in or my friend's places. For many of my true paranormal stories you can read them at www.linkedin.com I will try to copy and move all my articles here in this site in near future. Thank you for reading and God Bless you all.
