My true Ghost story In Indio California

I worked in north Ontario at a moose factory hospital then ultrasound supervisor in Windsor Ontario – Windsor regional hospital 

I moved to the USA in 1987. Start WORKING with Dr Bakist a vascular surgeon in palm desert California and he had an ultrasound clinic in INDIO

And wanted me to work with another sonographer his name was DAVID GONZALES, he was a Mexican American and a Korean War veteran who taught me the carotid ultrasound, that was 34 years ago

I was 34 years old

The clinic was a one story building in an old building. Most of the doctors were moved to nearby new place, so my boss rented the place along

With a physiotherapist, x-ray and 2 ultrasound rooms

The clinic was in front of the DESERT HOSPITAL IN INDIO CALIFORNIA. And I was doing general ultrasound and MSK muscle sonography.

Our clerk named Angela a Mexican American lady. The second sonographer David moved and started working somewhere else so i stayed behind in the clinic as by that time i was able to do all the vascular plus the general ultrasound 

I felt so guilty because I thought David lost his job because of me and moved to another place. He was a very good friend, man of faith, and you feel so secure and well taken care of when you are beside him, God bless him. I wish I knew where he is now?

One day I was working alone as the second sonographer was away, an old Mexican lady came with her HUSBAND AND GRANDMOTHER To check for her daughter pregnancy 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. 

 I recorded THE images on VHS tape for our record.

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

While I was doing the ultrasound scanning the baby had very faint heart BEATS and his heart beats was less than 50 beats per minutes, there was lots of amniotic fluid/polyhydramnios, 


So i used another term and told them it was water in the uterus, amniotic fluid large, and used 

The word water to make it easy for them, water around the baby heart and in the brain, hydrocephalus , And by the time I did the scan and all other measurements the baby heart stopped beating completely , and went to fetal demise, it’s very rare to happen while I do  the ultrasound scan and this is only case I had in my scanning Currier that the baby heart stop in the end of the exam. 

The patient Rosa started crying and her husband was very sad and the grandmother was weeping and crying too, it was a very sad moment in the room.

The grandmother started weeping; she was sitting in the chair in the ultrasound room, and had some nice smell like jasmine…

So, I documented the finding and put it in the VHS video to show that there is 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.

Few DAYS LATER IN ABOUT 4 DAYS the grandmother passed away 

I was informed by our Mexican clerk who KNOWS THE NEWS. I was very saddened by the news.

One week later 

While I was opening the clinic early in the morning AROUND 6 AM, as I always go early to work.

I started feeling uneasy and I felt someone watching me especially when I go to the 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. But the ultrasound machines were all the same and the rooms were the same and there were no extra wiring or extra machines in them.

I saw A FOOTPRINT MADE OF WATER coming from the back window at the clinic all the way to my ultrasound room; I cleaned it as I thought someone forgot to clean the place. That’s happened few times 

And I kept asking the office if there was anyone working late? The answer was no.

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. The smell in the room was the same as what the grandmother was wearing… The sound of weeping and sadness made me so sad and I remembered that I asked whoever was in this room with me Please leave me alone, go in peace, I TURNED my face in different directions as I couldn’t see the spirit, I was very gentle in my voice and tone .

 Then I said how can I help you? Is there anything I can do for you? 

I turned on the VHS and turned the volume up and I said is this baby you want to see, I was trying to show the pictures of the baby while she was alive before the heart stopped.

Then I told her to please go in peace, you are a grandmother with faith in God, this baby is now in God’s hands. We all are in God’s hands, please remember that your sadness will hurt her soul, and just pray to God she will be ok.

Then I felt a gush of wind LEAVING   the room ULTRASOUND ROOM back to the end of the clinic where the window toward the backyard and the desert was. 

And leading IN THE SAME LINE where I found the water footsteps 

I told Angela the clerk about the incident as she was a catholic and she believes in spirits. She did some prayers and cleansing the place with sage and other herbs.

Few weeks later the sound came back again when I was alone and just opened the clinic early AT 6 AM

And I felt prescience in the chair where the grandmother was sitting watching the baby scan.

But this time was no weeping, just feeling of this prescience in the room

Angela did more cleansing and 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 close by town .

After the cleansing for the 2nd time everything settled down. 

I had asked the clerk if we could go to the grandmother’s grave and do some prayers for her. Angela said her body was taken back to Mexico and buried near her relatives. 


My apartment was new in a very good compound back in 1987-1988 in Indio California and It was about a 10 to 15 minutes walk to the clinic.

My apartment was in the back, close to the wilderness / desert area. I experienced the most horrific demonic haunting that I ever encountered, after I brought the VHS tape to my apartment to do case studies of different patients. It all started by haunting my dreams with nightmares, Shadows passing so fast from the corners of my eyes and when I stood in the mirror to shave.

Things started to be displaced such as keys, books and chairs were knocked down while I was sitting reading. When I started viewing the VHS for my case studies , my TV started to act up. It reminded me of the movie Poltergeist. I was blaming faulty wires , lights started flickering and that all stopped when I stopped viewing that VHS tape!

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 more often pulling my bed sheet cover from me, and a heavy intense feeling of being watched.

I heard Sound of strange languages, chatters and it stopped as soon as I entered the room. I remember I used to check the small radio that I had and the TV to see if it was turned on, but both were off.

The footprint of water started to appear in the apartment, like someone just took a shower and walked in the place, my apartment had carpets and no hard wood so you can imagine the water on the carpet is not difficult to miss, I asked the manager if there was anybody who entered to clean? He said NO. I asked if he could send someone to check for water leak, he did that himself and he said he didn’t find any leak!

I wish I had camera surveillance at that time, but I was busy in my life and work and couldn’t afford buying electronic devices.

One night  after 12 midnight on a Saturday night, I was asleep and then woke up to drink a glass of water I saw this figure, a demonic figure in Middle east we call them the JINN, standing by my bedroom, it came from nowhere and appeared so fast , and it moved so fast toward me, and pushed me right to the bed, sat on my chest and started to talk in a very strange language that I never heard before, and I knew Hebrew, Arabic, Malay , Greek and even Aramaic but the language was so strange and couldn’t understand what he was saying!

 The entity was about 3 feet tall, with no neck ugly looking, very hairy face, a short tail, 3 fingers in front and 4th in the back of his hand like a bird claws.

It has a circular mouth, 3 circles of mouth with very sharp teeth. And had a very fat hairy body and a short hairy tail, it had 4 fingers only like a claws and his eyes like a cat ‘s scared the living heel of me. That’s why when those demons scratch a person they leave 3 or 4 lines.

 I was so terrified and could believe what I was seeing.  I couldn’t move despite my trying so hard. Then after about a few agonizing minutes I managed to gather my courage and prayed hard and said the lord name. Every time I pray I feel out of its grip, and it gets weak until I shout with my prayers, the entity left the room floating more than walking.

I started reading the Quran Fatiha, AL Kursey, al falaq, Alnas verses we call them the ROQYA PRAYERS  THAT BURN AND GET RID OF ANY DEMONS.AND ALSO I had a bible in the room and started reading the deliverance prayer. I relaxed and my heart beating slowed down.

I couldn’t stay in that place I said to myself; I can walk to the living room where that entity floated.

Then I opened / slid the balcony door and climbed and dangled from the balcony and jumped to the grass. I ran and left the place and told the compound manager what I just saw and it was way after midnight. I apologized for my behaviour but I didn’t want to call a taxi and go to the hotel with all the extra expenses. I couldn’t call the police because I didn’t know what I would say to them!

The manager knew me and he knew that I don’t do drugs or drink, he believed me and let me stay in the guest apartment , the show place that people see before they rent at that time .

He let me stay overnight in the guest room as I was so afraid to go back alone.

Next day I managed to move to a different apartment away from mine, and I brought a friend of faith to bless the new apartment, and it was OK.

I wondered if that was related to what I saw in the clinic somehow, if I got something that followed me to my apartment. I wonder if the grandmother ghost followed me because of the VHS.  As she associated it with her granddaughter who passed away?

I wonder if the water footprint is also a way for the grandmother to associate the water with what I told them (( there is a lot of water in the amniotic, lots of water in the brain)) as I used the term water instead of polyhydramnios and hydrocephalus .

I returned the tape to the clinic; I managed to copy the other cases and deleted the baby demise case. Kept the new copy and destroyed the VHS , cut it and broke the plastic , and I remembered I washed my hand. I was worried about any piece of plastic  attached to me.

I still use the same copy of the QURAN that was with me, and the same Mezuzah prayer still with me. I can bring them with me.

Later in a few months I had a job in BC- Canada with better contract and I moved without looking back, even my brother Sam was surprised he used to live in Sandieago California.

I went so fast that I left many items behind, I called my friend David to take what he wanted and send me some important items that I left behind. He shipped it to me and that was the end in Indio.

In my understanding the clinic was closed down as the other sonographer went to work at a new place, and I left so they didn’t have any sonographer to go to Indio.

blog paranormal zone and haunting dimension 

By Dr.Saad Al-Hashimi, PhD

Greeting from Calgary, Alberta - Canada. My name is Saad Ramzi Al-Hashimi . I am the founder and the director of the Paranormal zone- Haunting Dimensions. That deals with an investigation, debunking, and healing/cleansing. 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 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 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.
