The day after Christmas in 2004 an earthquake under the Indian ocean triggered a tsunami that killed well over 200,000 people in 14 countries. The tragedy was one of the deadliest natural disasters in history, and Thailand was one of the hardest hit countries.
I have done aid work all over the globe and was assigned to a project in Thailand in one of the worst hit communities, Khao Lak, where a colleague’s story made me so wildly uncomfortable I was afraid to go too close to the water.
She told the story of her son playing near the beach when it was completely empty towards the end of the day. The sun was setting when he suddenly stopped short and looked out at the water. He then asked “who are all those people?”
Looking out, there wasn’t a soul so she asked “who are you talking about?”
The son replied “all of them,” and then proceeded to keep his finger pointed as he rotated to indicate the whole length of the beach.
They left and after she told our colleagues this story, many people came and added to the shrines that were already there, but it is a story that is hard to shake.
For more international hauntings keep reading.
