Ghost Haunts Kids' Playground

Haunted PlaygroundA ‘Haunted’ playground swing that rocks backwards and forwards on its own for days has scientists baffled.

Parents and children are convinced a ghost is to blame. They were so spooked they reported the swing to cops after it began moving four months ago.

The phenomenon flummoxed police, who called physics professors into Firmat, Argentina. But so far they have failed to find a logical explanation.

Locals claim the seat moves nonstop for ten days before stopping dead, while other swings remain still.

Academics have now ruled out magnetic and electrical fields, and winds – and called in ghosthunters.
