A shocking video that went viral online claims to show a CCTV captured footage when a Woman's 'Soul' is leaving her Body after a Fatal bike crash in Thailand. So let us analyze whether the paranormal allegation shown in the video is fact or not.
Origin of Claim
On 17 Sep. 2016 YouTube user Sutannaraj Suwannatada published the bike crash video with a Thai language title that roughly translates to 'Spirit will emerge'. Because of the eerie claim and that the video was also mentioned in various news outlets, the story soon garnered millions of views online. YouTube user Sutannaraj Suwannatada has been publishing various traffic and accident videos. The same day the video was also published by another YouTube user by name 'ABbungbuff Channel,' and the title in Thai suggested soul leaving the body after the motorcycle slammed a light pole. Notably, the description of the channel mentions that they publish entertaining videos.
The original motorcycle crash video appeared earlier online; it was in fact a horrific accident that occurred in Khao Phra Ngam area in Lopburi district of Thailand. The video, which also appeared on Live Leak website liveleak.com on 17 Sep. 2016 with a title 'Moped Rider Body Slams a Tree', shows the time stamp of the accident to have happened the day before. More importantly -- the CCTV footage does not show any eerie ghost or soul leaving the body after the motorcycle crash (see second video in this article). So it's quite clear that the ghost or soul figure was photoshopped into the accident footage and thus came the eerie claim which is nothing more than a hoax.
