Teenager Electrocuted While Charging Phone Overnight

A teenager died when she was zapped with a massive electric shock after falling asleep on top of her charging mobile phone following a shower.

Victim Khorn Srey Pov – a Chinese translator at the Sing Yon Kong Yik gold mining company in Kratie province, Cambodia – was found dead on top of her phone.

Earlier, the 17-year-old had showered and had plugged her phone into a charger and turned its torch light on.

Local officials declared she had died instantly in her sleep from a massive electric shock on 27th July.

Her death has provoked a social media debate on the safety of phone chargers.

One netizen said: “They should be having public awareness campaigns on how to handle electricity. I see people touching live wires on those transformer posts all the time, and unfortunate incidents like these happen often.”

While another said: “She had just showered, so perhaps she was still wet when she laid down atop that multi-socket thingamajig.

“Even if dry, though, not a good idea to have one of those in bed with you. Tragic.”

In 2013, Apple investigated the death of a woman in China who was reportedly electrocuted after answering a call on her iPhone while it was charging.

And in February, 18-year-old Angel Andrada was electrocuted and died after leaving the family dinner table to charge his phone in Argentina.

In Brazil, a two-year-old toddler died after getting an electric shock from a mobile phone charger last year.

Experts explain that the chances of someone being electrocuted by a charger is low.

But the risks grow if an incompatible or substandard charger is used, as they do not insulate correctly, resulting in fire, overheating or electric shock.

Earlier this year, a man who became a “human fireball” when he was electrocuted by an 11,000 volt shock has described the moment he came back to life after laying “dead” for several minutes.

Darren Harris, 29, had been urban exploring and collecting scrap from an abandoned steel works in Wolverhampton when he came across a switchboard and electric mains in November 2020.

Presuming they were off as the building was set to be demolished, the scaffolder put his hand on a live copper bar and was instantly “catapulted” across the room by the voltage.

Somehow Darren regained consciousness and managed to flag down an ambulance passing by chance.

Nichelle Nichols, Barrier-Breaking Star Trek Actress, Dead at 89

Nichelle Nichols, who broke a major race barrier as the star of the 1960s sci-fi series Star Trek, has died. She was 89.

Nichols’ death was confirmed by her talent manager and business partner of 15 years, Gilbert Bell, to Variety on Sunday. She died in Silver City, New Mexico.

A representative for Nichols did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Last December, the star made her final convention appearance before her many fans as part of a three-day farewell celebration at L.A. Comic-Con. Nichols was seen waving, blowing kisses and flashing Star Trek’s famous Vulcan salute to the many fans who turned out to bid her farewell. She was surrounded by members of her family and longtime friends including Nichols’ son Kyle Johnson, who served as her spokesperson; her younger sister Marian Michaels; actresses Judy Pace and Beverly Todd; and former astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, who joined NASA as a result of Nichols’ role in recruiting women and minorities into the space program in the 1970s and 1980s as a result of her Star Trek fame.

Nichols enjoyed decades in the spotlight thanks to her screen work, her music career and her activism to help more women succeed in the field of astronomy.

Born Grace Dell Nichols in Robbins, Illinois, Nichols studied dance at the Chicago Ballet Academy as a teenager before she was discovered by jazz legend Duke Ellington. Nichols joined Ellington’s tour as a ballet dancer, but ended up as the lead singer, touring all over North America and Europe.

In 1959, she made her big-screen debut as a dancer in Sammy Davis Jr.’s Porgy and Bess. She went on to act in other films and TV series, including making a guest appearance in Gene Roddenberry’s show, The Lieutenant, in 1964.

But Nichols’ breakout role came when Roddenberry cast the actress as Lt. Nyota Uhura on the original Star Trek series. When the show first aired in 1966, Nichols was one of the first Black women to play a major role on primetime television.

She is popularly cited as having the first interracial kiss on American television, when her character famously locked lips with white leading man William Shatner‘s Captain James T. Kirk. Martin Luther King Jr. once called Nichols’ role “the first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history.”

Following the end of the science-fiction series, Nichols worked to recruit diverse astronauts to NASA, including women and ethnic minorities. Among those who were recruited as a result of the program was Sally Ride, the first female American astronaut.

During her acting career, Nichols starred in six Star Trek movies from 1979–91. Some of her most recent work included the 2002 Disney picture Snow Dogs, in which she played Cuba Gooding Jr.‘s mother. In 2005, she acted alongside Ice Cube as Miss Mable in the comedy Are We There Yet?, and in 2007, she had a reoccurring role on the NBC series Heroes as Nana Dawson. Nichols appeared in the long-running daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless as recently as 2016.

In 1992, Nichols was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And when the original Star Trek cast was honored in front of Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in 1991, she became the first African-American to place her handprints and signature at the iconic spot.

In addition to acting, Nichols also recorded two albums, Down to Earth and Out of This World.

Nichols’ death comes after a battle for her conservatorship was revealed in May 2019, when her manager Gilbert Bell provided Atlanta’s CBS46 with a disturbing video apparently taken by him. In the video, the actress could be heard screaming in protest as she held what Bell claimed were legal guardianship documents filed by her son, Kyle Johnson, who was named her legal conservator by a court.

Bell told PEOPLE at the time the situation was “devastating.” Nichols’ close friend Angelique Fawcette told PEOPLE she was shocked by the video, which was reportedly recorded on April 23.

“I knew [Nichols and her son] had a bad relationship,” she said. “I’ve never seen Nichelle scream like that. It’s like, what is going on behind closed doors every day?”

Nichols has one son from her first marriage to Foster Johnson. She later remarried songwriter Duke Mondy. The pair divorced in 1972.

5 People Stabbed While Tubing on Busy Wisconsin River

A teenager was killed and four people were critically wounded after they were stabbed while tubing on a busy Wisconsin river on Saturday, authorities said.

St. Croix County Sheriff Scott Knudson described the scene as “chaotic” and “scary.”

“I’m sure that anybody that witnessed it will never forget it,” he told reporters during a press briefing Saturday. “It is a tragedy.”

Five people were stabbed with a knife while tubing on the Apple River in Somerset Saturday afternoon, the sheriff said.

A 17-year-old boy from Minnesota was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Knudson said.

The four other victims were all believed to have critical injuries, he said. Two victims were transported out of the hard-to-reach area by helicopter and several ambulances responded.

The surviving victims included one woman and three men, all in their early 20s, the sheriff said.

A suspect had fled the scene but was taken into custody without incident, the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff said he was a 52-year-old man from Minnesota. A bystander took a photo of him, which helped authorities in locating him, he said.

Authorities were searching the area for the knife used in the attack and were interviewing a “number of witnesses”, Knudson said.

“We’re actually in the process of trying to divert some of the tubing traffic around our crime scene,” he said. “That alone is causing some challenges trying to get them off the river, and gathering up what we can in a hard-to-get-to area.

It is unclear what led up to the attack, Knudson said.

There is no further threat to the public, the sheriff’s office said.

Somerset is located near the Wisconsin-Minnesota border, about 35 miles east of Minneapolis.

The Apple River is a popular destination for tubing and camping.

Woman and 5 Children Killed After She Drives Van the Wrong Way Down Interstate

At least seven people are dead after a fiery crash along U.S. Interstate 90 in Illinois on Sunday, July 31, investigators told news outlets.

Around 2 a.m., a van driving the wrong way on I-90 crashed into a car at mile marker 33, near the town of Hampshire, Illinois State Police said in a release.

Both vehicles went up in flames, ISP said. A woman and five children in the van were killed, along with another woman in the car they collided with.

One person was taken by helicopter to a hospital in critical condition, the release said.

Police had not released the identities of anyone involved as of the afternoon of July 31.

NBA Legend Bill Russell Dies at 88

Bill Russell, the NBA great who anchored a Boston Celtics dynasty that won 11 championships in 13 years — the last two as the first Black head coach in any major U.S. sport — and marched for civil rights with Martin Luther King Jr., died Sunday. He was 88.

His family posted the news on social media, saying Russell died with his wife, Jeannine, by his side. The statement did not give the cause of death.

“Bill’s wife, Jeannine, and his many friends and family thank you for keeping Bill in your prayers. Perhaps you’ll relive one or two of the golden moments he gave us, or recall his trademark laugh as he delighted in explaining the real story behind how those moments unfolded,” the family statement said. “And we hope each of us can find a new way to act or speak up with Bill’s uncompromising, dignified and always constructive commitment to principle. That would be one last, and lasting, win for our beloved #6.”

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement that Russell was “the greatest champion in all of team sports.”

“Bill stood for something much bigger than sports: the values of equality, respect and inclusion that he stamped into the DNA of our league. At the height of his athletic career, Bill advocated vigorously for civil rights and social justice, a legacy he passed down to generations of NBA players who followed in his footsteps,” Silver said. “Through the taunts, threats and unthinkable adversity, Bill rose above it all and remained true to his belief that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity.

A Hall of Famer, five-time Most Valuable Player and 12-time All-Star, Russell in 1980 was voted the greatest player in the NBA history by basketball writers. He remains the sport’s most prolific winner and an archetype of selflessness who won with defense and rebounding while leaving the scoring to others. Often, that meant Wilt Chamberlain, the only player of the era who was a worthy rival for Russell.

But Russell dominated in the only stat he cared about: 11 championships to two.

The native of Louisiana also left a lasting mark as a Black athlete in a city — and country — where race is often a flash point. He was at the March on Washington in 1963, when Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech, and he backed Muhammad Ali when the boxer was pilloried for refusing induction into the military draft.

In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded Russell the Medal of Freedom alongside Congressman John Lewis, billionaire investor Warren Buffett, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and baseball great Stan Musial.

“Bill Russell, the man, is someone who stood up for the rights and dignity of all men,” Obama said at the ceremony. “He marched with King; he stood by Ali. When a restaurant refused to serve the Black Celtics, he refused to play in the scheduled game. He endured insults and vandalism, but he kept on focusing on making the teammates who he loved better players and made possible the success of so many who would follow.”

Russell said that when he was growing up in the segregated South and later California his parents instilled in him the calm confidence that allowed him to brush off racist taunts.

“Years later, people asked me what I had to go through,” Russell said in 2008. “Unfortunately, or fortunately, I’ve never been through anything. From my first moment of being alive was the notion that my mother and father loved me.” It was Russell’s mother who would tell him to disregard comments from those who might see him playing in the yard.

“Whatever they say, good or bad, they don’t know you,” he recalled her saying. “They’re wrestling with their own demons.”

But it was Jackie Robinson who gave Russell a road map for dealing with racism in his sport: “Jackie was a hero to us. He always conducted himself as a man. He showed me the way to be a man in professional sports.”

The feeling was mutual, Russell learned, when Robinson’s widow, Rachel, called and asked him to be a pallbearer at her husband’s funeral in 1972.

“She hung the phone up and I asked myself, ‘How do you get to be a hero to Jackie Robinson?’” Russell said. “I was so flattered.”

William Felton Russell was born on Feb. 12, 1934, in Monroe, Louisiana. He was a child when his family moved to the West Coast, and he went to high school in Oakland, California, and then the University of San Francisco. He led the Dons to NCAA championships in 1955 and 1956 and won a gold medal in 1956 at the Melbourne Olympics in Australia.

Celtics coach and general manager Red Auerbach so coveted Russell that he worked out a trade with the St. Louis Hawks for the second pick in the draft. He promised the Rochester Royals, who owned the No. 1 pick, a lucrative visit by the Ice Capades, which were also run by Celtics owner Walter Brown. Still, Russell arrived in Boston to complaints that he wasn’t that good.

Still, Russell arrived in Boston to complaints that he wasn’t that good. “People said it was a wasted draft choice, wasted money,” he recalled. “They said, ‘He’s no good. All he can do is block shots and rebound.’ And Red said, ‘That’s enough.’”

The Celtics also picked up Tommy Heinsohn and K.C. Jones, Russell’s college teammate, in the same draft. Although Russell joined the team late because he was leading the U.S. to the Olympic gold, Boston finished the regular season with the league’s best record.

The Celtics won the NBA championship — their first of 17 — in a double-overtime seventh game against Bob Pettit’s St. Louis Hawks. Russell won his first MVP award the next season, but the Hawks won the title in a finals rematch. The Celtics won it all again in 1959, starting an unprecedented string of eight consecutive NBA crowns.

A 6-foot-10 center, Russell never averaged more than 18.9 points during his 13 seasons, each year averaging more rebounds per game than points. For 10 seasons he averaged more than 20 rebounds. He once had 51 rebounds in a game; Chamberlain holds the record with 55.

Auerbach retired after winning the 1966 title, and Russell became the player-coach — the first Black head coach in NBA history, and almost a decade before Frank Robinson took over baseball’s Cleveland Indians. Boston finished with the best regular-season record in the NBA, but its title streak ended with a loss to Chamberlain and the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Division finals.

Russell led the Celtics back to titles in 1968 and ’69, each time winning seven-game playoff series against Chamberlain. Russell retired after the ’69 finals, returning for a relatively successful — but unfulfilling —- four-year stint as coach and GM of the Seattle SuperSonics and a less fruitful half season as coach of the Sacramento Kings.

Russell’s No. 6 jersey was retired by the Celtics in 1972. He earned spots on the NBA’s 25th anniversary all-time team in 1970, 35th anniversary team in 1980 and 75th anniversary team. In 1996, he was hailed as one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players. In 2009, the MVP trophy of the NBA Finals was named in his honor.

In 2013, a statue was unveiled on Boston’s City Hall Plaza of Russell surrounded by blocks of granite with quotes on leadership and character. Russell was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1975 but did not attend the ceremony, saying he should not have been the first African American elected. (Chuck Cooper, the NBA’s first Black player, was his choice.)

In 2019, Russell accepted his Hall of Fame ring in a private gathering. “I felt others before me should have had that honor,” he tweeted. “Good to see progress.”

“I cherished my friendship with Bill and was thrilled when he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom,” Silver said in his statement. “I often called him basketball’s Babe Ruth for how he transcended time. Bill was the ultimate winner and consummate teammate, and his influence on the NBA will be felt forever. We send our deepest condolences to his wife, Jeannine, his family and his many friends.”

His family said that arrangements for Russell’s memorial service will be announced in the coming days.

17-Year-Old Couragiously Rescued Her Dog During Kentucky Flood

Early Thursday morning, 17-year-old Chloe Adams woke up to a nightmare. Rushing waters were coming out of the bathroom drains, bubbling up through the kitchen tiles and quickly surrounding her home.

Chloe, who lives with her grandfather in Whitesburg, Kentucky, was alone, with no one but her trusted companion, Sandy, the dog she’s had since she was a toddler.

“There was water as far as I could see,” she told CNN in a message. “I had a full-blown panic attack.”

But she was determined to make it out safely, and take her dog with her.

At least 25 people were killed in Thursday’s heavy rains and widespread floods across eastern Kentucky and hundreds of others lost everything they had, Gov. Andy Beshear said Friday.

Chloe’s grandparents were at a home just a few feet away, separated from their granddaughter by the rushing waters. They yelled over to her, urging Chloe to stay inside until help arrived. But with little cell service and a 911 center which, likely overwhelmed, was unresponsive to her calls, Chloe said she realized she needed to get out to survive.

Chloe and her dog Sandy when they were much younger

“My next thought was that we needed to swim out to my uncle’s house,” where the rest of her family was taking shelter, she said. “I put Sandy in the water momentarily to see if she could swim. But she couldn’t, so I scooped her up and went back inside, wading through the waist deep water to try to locate something that she could float to put her on.”

After experimenting with other pieces of furniture, Chloe placed her dog inside a plastic drawer from her closet to keep her dry — and then placed the drawer on a sofa cushion to keep her afloat.

“I finally had a plan that I believed … might work,” she said. “I knew the dangers of trying to swim in deep and moving water, but I felt I had no choice.”

She swam in the cold waters, pushing Sandy’s cushion in front of her, until she reached the slim roof of a nearby storage building; the only part of the structure not yet submerged.

There, the two sat for more than five hours before Chloe’s cousin rescued the teen and her dog with the help of a kayak. Nearby, Chloe’s family, sheltering in the second floor of her uncle’s home, watched over and talked to her as she waited for help.

When the teen returned to her grandmother’s home, she broke down, “from the relief of knowing Sandy and I survived the flood,” she said.

“My heart goes out to all the other people who lost and suffered so much more than I did in this horrific devastation,” Chloe added.

In a Facebook post after the rescue, Terry Adams, the teen’s father, called his daughter a “hero.”

“We lost everything today,” he wrote. “Everything except what matters most.”

‘Jeopardy!’ Fans Threaten Boycott Over Mayim Bialik

Longtime fans of “Jeopardy!” are threatening to boycott the show since Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings are splitting hosting duties.

On Wednesday, the beloved game show announced that the two interim hosts would keep their jobs, with Jennings hosting from September to January and Bialik taking over from January through the end of the season.

The “Call Me Kat” actress will also be the host of “Celebrity Jeopardy!” and special tournaments, while Jennings will host the Second Chance Tournament and the Tournament of Champions.

That was unwelcome news for some viewers as both the history-making “Jeopardy!” champion and the “Big Bang Theory” alum have faced their fair share of blunders — and, therefore, criticism.

The Twitter announcement received hundreds of responses, many expressing unhappiness at the news that Bialik would be sticking around.

“Will not be watching @Jeopardy until @KenJennings becomes the primary and only host. This switching stuff sucks! #boycottjeopardy because they have idiots running it. What a mess,” one commenter said.

“Great! I’ll watch through December when Ken hosts. I will not watch any Jeopardy Mayim hosts,” one person weighed in.

“And I am permanently not watching,” another person declared.

“No one is thrilled to see Mayim co-hosting at all, if you’d listen to the people most of us preferred Ken as the full-time host over Mayim Bialik. Watch when viewership goes down when Mayim hosts & then goes up with Ken you guys will regret to co-host crap,” one more user wrote.

“That woman drives me away from the show-and most others I know agree that she’s a mess as host,” one viewer quipped.

However, others said that Jennings is the problem.

“Mayim is way better as a host,” one user wrote. “Ken is not a public speaker let alone a TV host. Trivia nerds and Twitter nerds r the only Jeopardy viewers that prefer Ken, which is a small segment of Jeopardy’s viewership.”

“If Ken was as good as social media says he is, he would have been Sony’s pick by himself,” another stated. “Mayim needs practice. I agree. But she has a far superior Jeopardy voice for reading clues like Alex did. That’s why they picked Mayim.”

“This is a winning hosting team that Alex [Trebek] would be so proud of. Jeopardy is more popular than ever and will have the brightest future including prime time,” another said of the late longtime host.

In other “Jeopardy!” scandal news, social media was flabbergasted last week when all three contestants missed a question about 11-time Grammy Award-winner Taylor Swift and her hit song “You Need to Calm Down.”

The 39th season of the show begins filming next week.

Pastor Robbed During Livestream Now Accused of Swindling Thousands

The story of Brooklyn Bishop Lamor Miller Whitehead gets wilder by the day, after allegations have surfaced that the pastor conned a member of his congregation out of her $90,000 life savings, and a separate lawsuit in which he owes developers over $335,000.

Whitehead denounced the press on Friday, after many social media sleuths have dug into the church head’s past, outing his felonious history.

According to The City, Pauline Anderson, the parishioner accusing him of swindling her retirement savings, sued the bishop in September 2021 after he told her he would help buy her home due to her poor credit, but instead kept the money for a failed 2021 political campaign, court documents say.

Reports additionally maintain that a New Jersey developing company won a lawsuit against the ex-con pastor in May 2021 for more than $335,000 in unpaid dues.

During a press conference at 922 Remsen Avenue in Brooklyn yesterday, the pastor opened up the conference with a prayer, to address the traumatic events and by extension, the allegations. 

“They always wanna bring up the past,” he told reporters, and went on to detail growing up without a father. He continued: “Everybody is setting a narrative that it was a million dollars, it was 400,000. All that’s garbage.” 

Before opening the floor to questions, Whitehead ended his speech with, “The leading story around the world is Bishop Whitehead… Everybody’s tending off of Bishop Whitehead. But Bishop Whitehead goes home and cry, because I’m the victim, my church is the victim. But the media is portraying me to be a villain.”

As previously reported, the bishop was robbed at gunpoint by masked men during a Instagram livestream of his sermon last Sunday. He was in the middle of addressing the congregation until he spotted the possible danger and hit the floor on his hands and knees.

While original reports say he was robbed of over $400,000 worth of jewelry, many outlets have stated the heist was valued at over a million.

During the press conference, however, he declined to go into detail regarding the missing money and his debts.

The pastor has only intensified the backlash each time he addresses the situation, many not buying his impassioned address.

“What in the Jussie Smollett is going on here????!!” one user commented.

“You can’t afford security for your church, but got millions in jewelry and several high-end cars? Make it Make Sense,” said another.

“Pimpin by any other name is still pimpin…” wrote a third.

Prince Charles Given £1m from Family of Osama bin Laden

The Prince of Wales received a £1m donation for his charity from relatives of Osama bin Laden, according to a report.

The Sunday Times alleged that the future king accepted the payment from Bakr bin Laden, the patriarch of the Saudi family, and his brother Shafiq.

Prince Charles, 73, is said to have held a private meeting with Bakr, 76, at Clarence House in London on 30 October 2013, two years after Osama bin Laden was shot dead by US special forces at a compound near Islamabad in Pakistan, according to the newspaper.

Clarence House strongly disputes many of the claims, saying the decision to accept the donation to his charity, the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF), was taken solely by trustees.

Bakr and Shafiq bin Laden are half-brothers of Osama, related to the founder of al-Qaida through their father Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a Yemeni-born billionaire.

There is no suggestion that Bakr or Shafiq bin Laden has sponsored or been involved in acts of terrorism.

Sir Ian Cheshire, chairman of the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation (PWCF), where the money was deposited, said in a statement: “The donation from Sheik Bakr bin Laden in 2013 was carefully considered by PWCF Trustees at the time.

“Due diligence was conducted, with information sought from a wide range of sources, including government. The decision to accept the donation was taken wholly by the Trustees.

“Any attempt to suggest otherwise is misleading and inaccurate.”

A source close to the charity said after a thorough examination of the issues, the trustees concluded that the actions of one bin Laden family member should not tarnish the whole family.

A Clarence House spokesperson said: “The Prince of Wales’ Charitable Fund has assured us that thorough due diligence was undertaken in accepting this donation. The decision to accept was taken by the charity’s Trustees alone and any attempt to characterise it otherwise is false.”

A source disputed suggestions that Charles had personally brokered the deal, had agreed to the donations despite advisers’ objections and that several advisers pleaded with him in person to return the money.

The source also denied that the prince was urged to return the money and was told the sum “would not be good for anybody”.

It comes a month after it emerged that the Prince of Wales accepted bags containing millions of euros in cash during meetings with the former prime minister of Qatar.

Last week, the Charity Commission said it would take no further action over the reports that Charles was given a total of €3m (£2.6m) during meetings with Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani.

The Sunday Times reported that the cash was handed to the Prince of Wales in a suitcase on one occasion, a holdall on another, as well as in Fortnum & Mason carrier bags, the upmarket department store which holds a royal warrant to supply the prince’s household with groceries.

The handovers were alleged to have occurred during meetings between the two men, including a private one-to-one meeting at Clarence House in 2015.

Each payment was deposited into the accounts of the PWCF and there is no suggestion the payments were illegal.

A Clarence House spokesperson said in June the money given during the 2015 meeting was “passed immediately to one of the prince’s charities who carried out the appropriate covenants and assured us that all the correct processes were followed”.

Ghost Children Allegedly Caught on Camera in New York Manor

A caretaker in New York has been documenting the ghostly presences he feels in an old manor house in Port Chester, New York.

His claims are varied and wild, including tales of people being incinerated alive and ritual sacrifices performed by prominent 19th century businessmen. It’s…a lot. But one regular spiritual visitor he likes to film is the “ghostly children” he claims haunt the basement of the building. 

In the video, the TikToker, who goes by John, films in the basement he is presumably renovating, as it is currently in an extreme state of disrepair.

He says he heard the sound of children’s laughter and felt a “heavy energy” when he entered the space, and as he swings the camera around, there appears to be something peeking out from behind a wall. Is it a ghostly child, or just a trick of the light?

A bit of digging reveals that the building he calls “Haunted Wesleye (or Wesley) Manor” on his TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube channel is actually Wesley House, an apartment building in Port Chester, New York.

It was originally built to be a private summer home in the 1860s by E.B. Wesley, an early “bank note broker”, Wall Street investor, and the founder of The New York Times. (And, according to this TikToker, an evil man fond of human sacrifice and currently an angry ghost who likes to break in on his livestreams.) 

Over the years, the place was a Revolutionary War-era camp (John claims more instances of human sacrifice), a 1918 pandemic hospital (where John says folks were burned alive), and now an apartment building (no units currently available, despite this vast ghostly presence).

Descriptions of the apartment say there is a property manager on site, which one can only assume is John. I wonder what the tenants think of all this dark history?
