A  Brief History

On November 1st, Mexicans continue their three-day celebration known as the “Day of the Dead,” which begins on October 31st and concludes on November 2nd.  For our third entry in our examination of the creepiest videos of YouTube, we honor those who really did pass away by featuring mysterious videos concerning real-life tragedies.

Digging Deeper

As far as the creepiest real-life videos go, nothing is creepier than the final recorded moments of the life of an individual who died under mysterious circumstances.  The first video below concerns the death of diver Yuri Lipski who recorded his final minutes in a diving accident in the “Blue Hole,” Dahab, Egypt:

The second video is something we covered in an earlier article on our site.  This video shows surveillance footage of 21-year-old Elisa Lam, a Canadian woman found dead in the rooftop water tank of the Cecil Hotel some time after this footage was taken:

Both of the above videos have sparked considerable speculation on online forums concerning how these individuals died, including discussions about whether something paranormal was involved.  Based on just watching the videos, what do you think really happened to these unfortunate people?  Please let us know in the comments section.

The two locations featured above have been the sites of numerous incidents.  To read more about them, please visit here and here, respectively.  For more unusual deaths, please read our article “The Most Unusual Deaths in History.”  Elisa Lam is also mentioned in the following book:


About Author

JCU Paranormal Research Group

The John Carroll Paranormal Research Group is a student organization that seeks to find out more about the paranormal while being academically intent and focusing on establishing credibility. Founded in the Fall of 2013 by Eugene Claridge and Raymond Camma, the BooStreaks have held many informative meetings that have included guest speakers, such as Dr. Judith Cetina and Bill Kreji, who appeared on Ghost Hunters in 2009. The group has worked with the Ohio P.I.R.A.T.E.S., a paranormal team out of Akron, Ohio, to learn some of their methods and to hear about their work. The Paranormal Research Group has conducted investigations in the following locations: the Cleveland Agora Theatre, the Ohio State Reformatory, the Russell Rhodes Mansion (a.k.a. the Cuyahoga County Archives), and the Sandy Chanty Seafood Restaurant. John Carroll University has recognized the group both in the Carroll News and most importantly, as the "Outstanding Organization of the Year." Not only has the group been able to explore the paranormal subject and investigated historically important locations in Ohio, but members had the fortunate opportunity to see advance screenings of major motion pictures that feature the paranormal, particularly The Quiet Ones (2013). After one academic year, group membership has risen to about eighty members, who seek further journeys this upcoming year. Please check out our Facebook and Twitter pages!
