A photograph taken of a scene where a rider died in a motorcycle crash appears to show the dead man’s soul rising from his body.
Saul Vazquez was driving close to the aftermath of the accident in Kentucky when he took the photo and posted it to his Facebook page.
He posted: “I took this picture just a few minutes ago from the cab of my truck. It was an accident between Campton and Stanton on the service road just off of the mountain parkway.
“Zoom in and pay attention to the shadow just off the top of the state trooper hat.”
Vazquez’ Facebook post begun to get shared by those who believed they were seeing the sole of the dead motorcyclist floating up towards heaven. At the time of writing, over 13,000 people have shared it.
They include one woman who wrote: “This was a tragic scene but I’d like to think your photo will bring a special solace to this man’s family. I agree with others who state you are truly a special person to have been able to capture this.”
But others are less believing, suggesting the image is not a soul at all… but vape smoke, or even the result of some clever Photoshopping.
