Creepy 'ghost' surveillance video spooks N.H. store employees

Employees at a store in a small New Hampshire town claim they are "freaked out" after a surveillance video showed a glass lid mysteriously shattering on the floor.  

A video reportedly taken from the Ellacoya Country Store in Gilford, shows a glass top to a cake display get thrown from the counter and shatter even though no one is see on the video. 

"I heard this big bang," employee Heidi Boyd told Manchester, N.H., TV station WMUR. "I heard this big bang and crash," said Boyd. "I walked around and looked and it was on the floor. It took a couple of minutes to set in ... still freaking me out." 

The shop's manager, Lisa Giles, told The Huffington Post that Boyd texted her "in a frantic" mood.

"It didn't make sense to her," Giles told the Huffiington Post. "However, anyone who's been here a substantial amount of time has seen something. When we first opened the place, we saw the ghost of a man standing in the doorway."

The video, which was recorded on March 10, has been become an Internet sensation and traffic to the store has increased.

"We're getting onlookers, but I wouldn't say it's increased business," Giles told Huffington Post.

COMMENTARY: Can Democrats save Trump from himself?

After President Donald Trump’s first legislative battle, a deplorably stingy attempt to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, went down without a vote in the House, I wondered: What happened to all of the “winning”? “We are gonna win, win, win,” Trump had promised at a National Rifle Association...
