An urban explorer says he felt a 'spirit' grab his arm inside an eerie abandoned care home.
Sonny, who claims to be sceptical of paranormal activity, says he could hear an 'older female spirit' talk to him before gripping his arm and leaving him dizzy with shock.
He told the Daily Star how he will never forget the terrifying moment. But far from putting him off the crumbling nursing home, Sonny has returned another three times.
"Every time I went I kept experiencing unexplained things," said Sonny, who has more than two million likes on his XplorewithSonny TikTok account.
The daring explorer from the US visited the nursing home armed with ghost-hunting gear which he used in an attempt to communicate with deceased residents.
He said: "I do my best to debunk this stuff and I don’t go running around claiming every noise or sound is paranormal but when my body feels something I usually go with it.
"I like to walk around and talk to the spirits and see if they are interested in speaking to me, I do this without equipment first."
Then armed with EMF detectors, digital recorders and spirit boxes, Sonny says he felt compelled to a bedroom where he began to pick up noise.
Sonny continued: "I was capturing intelligent responses to my questions which had the vocal tones of someone who might be older."

"I was moving all over the nursing home and found another room with a name still on the door. I was openly talking and saying this person's name in the hope they would want to communicate with me, if their spirit was in fact still here.
"While sitting in the room, I was conducting a spirit box session which is basically using a specialised radio that scans over stations extremely fast allowing spirits to talk over the white noise it emits."
It was then that Sonny confessed to experiencing something he never thought was possible, which left him on the verge of passing out as a result.

He added: "I remember for a moment feeling like time was standing still and I felt someone grab the back of my left arm. I quickly turned around in absolute shock but I thought it was my girlfriend sneaking up on me to scare me.
"To my surprise she was no where to be seen. After this a female voice came through my spirit box although it had been silent for minutes.
"I felt dizzy and had to stop as I was afraid I might pass out. I looked around the room for something that could have caused this but nothing made any sense.
"At the time this was the most compelling paranormal thing I’ve ever experienced. I never thought I’d feel the hand if a spirit grab me or if that was even possible.
"To this day I still can remember exactly how it felt and if I close my eyes it’s like I can relive that moment over and over again. Since then my investigations have become even more intense.
"I believe this experience has opened a door for me to the spirit world and I’ll gladly see what’s on the other side."
