Chilling image shows ‘ghost’s hand’ gripping son’s leg four days after his dad ‘came back from the d

A TERRIFIED dad spotted a creepy "ghost hand" resting on his son’s leg in a photo – just four days after he "came back from the dead".

Former addict Chris Downing, 43, captured the eerie image after he nearly died from a heroin overdose – and now fears he might have brought something back from the afterworld.

The chilling photograph which appears to show a hand on Kyle's leg

The dad-of-two, who is now clean, has shared the photograph for the first time after it was taken back in May 2012 – and the ‘unexplainable' extra hand in the shot has created waves online.

When paramedics found skeptic-turned-believer Chris, from Janesville, Wisconsin, USA he was completely blue with no heartbeat or pulse.

After his horrific wakeup call, the dad knew he needed to get clean – and decided to move from Wisconsin to Arkansas to start the road to recovery.

Before leaving his hometown, the dad booked a night at a local hotel where his children Alexis, now 25, and Kyle, now 16, came to visit him – with Kyle’s mum snapping the seemingly-normal family picture.

But it wasn’t until a week later that Chris received a phone call from his ‘frightened and rattled’ daughter – who pointed out the terrifying ‘ghost hand’ that had made an appearance.

Construction worker Chris said: “ I didn’t know what she was talking about. Then she mentioned a hand. I thought she was talking about my hand, but she told me to zoom in on Kyle’s leg. So I zoomed in and just yelled out ‘holy cow!’.

“I had no idea what the hell it was. I freaked out. I showed it to my son and he burst into tears straight away and ran into his room.

“He thought the ghost was after him and was petrified for a week.

He was only 11 at the time, and it was touching his leg. But he said he didn’t feel anything weird. He still won’t look at the photo to this day.”

My view: That's spooky, it looks like a woman's hand.
