The Dangers of Ghost Hunting
Ghost hunting is a dangerous business. It’s among the vast importance of things to learn before you decide to venture into this interesting, yet dangerous, world. There have been injuries and even death while doing an investigation. Unfortunately the accidents could be linked to the vast amount of amateurs or teens who think this is easy. It’s not. You constantly have to be on the lookout for dangers ahead. You got to remember, most of the time we do investigations in complete darkness. When you do investigations in a house, you need to mostly look out for furniture or that nice antique vase that someone could easily knock over. Stuff like that, but with abandoned houses it’s a completely different ball game.
Case in point, according to a story on the Paranormal Research Society’s website (which is down right now), a woman named Sarah Harris tragically died after she received a lung infection from an investigation she recently did. It wasn’t asbestos or chemicals, but bat droppings. The theory going around is that when they were walking, it stirred the droppings into the air and bat droppings are known to be lethal, as in the unfortunate case of Mrs. Harris.
