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.
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. Question for students (and subscribers): Based on just watching the videos, what do you think really happened to these unfortunate people? Please let us know in the comments section below this article.
