10 Most Haunted Waters of the World

Today’s video was requested by “Strong Boy”. If you have any other topics you’d like to

The Devil’s Pool, a water formation at the top of Victoria Falls, is a gorgeous spot
to swim at the edge of a massive cascade. It’s also the place where more than 15 men
have perished over the past 60 years. Legend says all the deaths are the direct
consequence of a woman’s broken heart. Oolana was a beautiful woman married to a
tribe elder, who fell in love with a married man who convinced her to escape with him. They were captured, yet the lovers managed
to break free and threw themselves in the Devil’s Pool, where they’re thought to have
met a gruesome end after plummeting down the waterfall. Those visitors brave enough to swim close
to the edge claim they can hear Oolana’s screams, even after all these years. Number 9: Great Salt Lake, Utah
Many years ago, a man by the name of Jean Baptiste began robbing graves around Salt
Lake City, taking the clothes and jewelry of the dead. He was incredibly prolific, opening over 300
graves and turning public opinion against him. They wanted him hanged, but his crimes weren’t
terrible enough to merit this punishment. So justice got creative instead, forcing Jean
to carry his crimes on his forehead. He was marked with the words: “Branded For
Robbing The Dead.”, and his ears were cut off. To add insult to injury, Jean was taken to
an abandoned island in the Great Salt Lake and left there to die alone and miserable. His ghost is said to haunt the Lake, many
decades after his death; a constant reminder of his gruesome punishment. Number 8: Lake Ronkonkoma, New York
New York appears in our list, as well as a dangerous Lady of the Lake. This version, though, is far more deadly than
the Texas legend. Many centuries ago, in the 1600s, a Native
American princess by the name of Tuskawanta and a white man called Hugh Birdsall, fell
madly in love. Her father, though, didn’t approve of their
relationship and separated them for good. The lovers were kept apart by the length of
the Lake, and Tuskawanta tried sending messages to her lover by carving love letters on tree
barks and throwing them into the Lake. She hoped they’d reach Hugh, but she never
heard from him again. Heartbroken, she rowed to the middle of the
Ronkonkoma Lake and killed herself, swearing to drown a man every single year. Through the centuries, many men, women, and
even children have drowned in this ominous location. Visitors can’t swim in the Lake any longer
because of algae bloom, so it seems the Lady of the Lake will have to go without victims
for a while Number 7: Chuuk Lagoon, Micronesia
Chuuk Lagoon was the site of a massive battlefield toward the end of World War II, between the
Japanese and American forces, in February 1944. Though it lasted as little as two days, the
Lagoon was still dubbed “the biggest graveyard of ships in the world.” It’s estimated that around 250 Japanese planes
and 50 ships were destroyed in this area, littering the Lagoon’s waters with corpses. For over two decades, this terrible spot was
mostly forgotten by everyone but the natives inhabiting the surroundings. It wasn’t until Jack Cousteau’s 1969 documentary
that people began visiting the Lagoon to scuba dive in its waters, retrieving bodies that
had been long since forgotten. It’s no wonder Chuuk Lagoon’s visitors report
countless sightings of ghosts over the years, given the number of soldiers who perished
in its dark waters. Quiz Question:
Before we move on, answer this quiz question. Why are ghosts most commonly detected at night? Is it because:
A. They’re easier cloaked by the darkness B. They can move around more freely when humans
are asleep C. It’s quieter & therefore easier to scare
people D. Fewer electronic devices are in use Number 6: Okiku’s Well, Japan
Okiku’s well is hidden inside a massive, ancient castle in Japan’s city of Himeji. It’s considered one of the Land of the Rising
Sun’s most haunted bodies of water, even if it’s nowhere near as big as a river or even
a pond. Legend says a young servant girl’s beauty
caught the eye of a samurai, who happened to be married. Not wanting to become his mistress, she refused
his advances. The samurai was furious about the rejection
and threw her into the well, killing her horribly in the process. The girl’s ghost remained on earth, wanting
to take revenge on the cruel samurai. She haunted him every single night until he
went mad with fear. This legend loosely inspired the popular horror
film Ringu, which in turn was remade as the American movie The Ring. You’ll probably never see a well the same
way again. Number 5: Saco River, Maine
Maine is the home state of renowned horror novelist Stephen King, so it’s no wonder it’s
also home to one of the world’s most haunted rivers. The cursing of these waters dates back to
1675 when three white men abandoned their ship and boarded a small rowing boat. Being drunk and foolish, or perhaps even plain
cruel, they noticed a native American woman with her baby son riding a canoe. They stole the baby from his mother’s arms
and threw it in the water, believing he’d be able to swim. Though the woman jumped into the river to
save her son, the baby ended up dying a week later as a consequence of the sailor’s horrible
actions. The dead boy’s father, chief of the local
tribe, cursed the river in retaliation, beaconing water spirits to steal the lives of three
white men every year. Number 4: White Rock Lake, Texas
The White Rock Lake became a tourist attraction back in 1911, an idyllic location for people
to hike, enjoy a picnic by the water, go fishing, or even host an event in the park surrounding
it. Though it’s a beautiful place, visitors should
be cautious not to run into the Lady of the Lake. She’s said to be a young woman who was either
involved in a fatal accident, a murder victim, or who took her own life. The Lady sometimes appears clad in a nightgown,
though she’s also been seen wearing a wedding dress. She always asks for a ride near the White
Rock Lake, soaking wet and looking sad and desperate. This ghost sobs silently during the ride,
usually sitting on the backseat of those foolish enough to offer her a ride. By the time the driver arrives at the destination
she asked to be taken to, the young woman is nowhere to be seen, having disappeared
into thin air. So far, it seems the Lady isn’t dangerous,
just plain creepy… but would you really want to risk it? Number 3: Blackwater River, Florida
Florida might be the sunshine state, but there’s nothing bright and shiny about the Blackwater
River. Even its name’s ominous! Residents in the area warn visitors to think
twice before dipping into its dark waters. They’ve regularly noticed a pale woman with
long black hair lurking around the riverside. The woman smells of rotting flesh and will
try to drown unsuspecting victims, dragging them toward the depths of the river with evil
intentions. Locals have tried to explain the reason behind
this ghost’s cruel ways. Apparently, the state park the river runs
through was the location of a brutal ritual, which resulted in the death of a young woman
dressed in a white gown. If you ever choose to visit the Blackwater
River and notice a pale-looking young lady clad all in white, don’t get in the water
or look her in the eyes. Just run the other way, and you should be
safe. So why are ghosts most commonly detected at
night? If you guessed D, you’re right! Since fewer electronic devices are in use
in the middle of the night, it’s easier for EMF meters to pick up on fluctuations in electromagnetic
fields. Number 2: Queen Mary Hotel’s Swimming Pool,
California Once an ocean liner, it was transformed into
a hotel back in the 60s, the Queen Mary might be among the most haunted inns in America. Its First Class Swimming Pool may very well
be completely ghosted-infected. It’s said that two women drowned in the pool
while the ship was still sailing across the North Atlantic between 1930 and 1960. Most guests seem to agree there are a couple
of frequent spirits roaming the poolside: An older woman and a kid named Jackie. Jackie loves to play hide and seek with the
guests, but only at night. Some people even claim they’ve noticed wet
footprints appearing out of nowhere at the edge of the pool! Number 1: Hessian Lake, New York It’s no wonder Hessian Lake is thought to
be haunted. It might look like a beautiful body of water
resting at the base of a grand mountain, but there’s much more to it than meets the eye. During the revolutionary war, this was the
site of a great battle, where British and German armies joined efforts to defeat the
American revolutionaries. Hessian was the name given to the soldiers
who aided the British forces in their war against the new nation. Over 250 Hessians died during this battle,
and their bloody bodies rolled onto the lake, tainting its water red. This led the area to be dubbed the “Bloody
Lake.” Another curious detail about the Hessian Lake
is that it’s located not far from the town of Sleepy Hollow, where the author Washington
Irving wrote the horror story centered around Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. People who frequent the lake claim they’ve
often seen Hessian soldiers walking around the shore in the dead of night, sometimes
missing several limbs and staring at them with glowing red eyes. Thanks for watching! Would you rather encounter a ghost while canoeing
in the middle of a lake at night or wake up next to a tarantula crawling on your bed?

  1. Would YOU rather encounter a ghost while canoeing in the middle of a lake at night OR wake up next to a tarantula crawling on your bed?

  2. I'm really sad. Life has no meaning. It never has. I wish I could just fade away. I dont have anyone to talk to or more truthfully anyone who will let me talk to them. I'm really just about done living. I'm not brave enough yet though.

  3. My grandparents' house is an old wooden one. The bathroom has a cement water retention pool with a wall that goes up to the chest area. Whenever anyone wanted to get water from it, they would use a dipper to scoop up the water. When I was a kid I was scared of going to the bathroom as I was convinced something that dull and deep would have a water demon or something in it.

  4. I would like to learn about Black Friday sales that have injured or killed people. Please do a video about that. Should be a lot of information about the subject I seem to recall a lot of people getting trampled to death or pepper sprayed or stabbed over on sale items.

  5. I'm no stranger to ghosts, that's for sure! I'd rather just encounter more ghosts because they can't bite me, whereas a tarantula can.

  6. do a video on the biggest battlefields with loss of life plz and tht japan chuuk would be creepy as fuck actual bodies n shit in there

  7. Ghosts donot exist but Demons do. They play on our fears, superstitions and past loved ones. I always enjoy orgin stories of folklores, legends and old wives tales, scary or not are always fascinating what people believe and how they became about. But do realize demons are great at deceiving. Oh ya aliens are demons too😂😱

  8. Can you do a video on most haunted roads? Me and a friend went to one haunted road in Griffith Indiana called Reder road and they saw a ghost

  9. Much rather go see a ghost anytime. I'm not afraid of spirits,ghost poltergeist or anything like that. But I do not like spiders at all

  10. Black Swamp, MS; was one of or biggest black water swamp in world and creepy stories about idk if any are on net though.

  11. Reply to your question,; Your answer was half right…!
    In fact, at night it’s quieter so you can hear the spirits answering you ! ! !
    Enjoyed your vid 👍👍👍👍👍❤️

  12. Worst concentration camps pls? (Any time after Medieval times) or maybe a video about the worst medieval torture methods?
    This channel is awesome btw

  13. Top 10 most unexpectedly dangerous birds. or even top 10 cases of harm/death caused by birds that are typically not seen as dangerous P:

  14. I'm never swimming in these waters and they say if you watch "the ring" the girl will call you and tell you that she will kill you in 7 days. There's also a ghost story in illinois too. My mom says that There was a young girl who tragically drowned in the pool at the Illinois State beach resort in Zion during the 1960s and at night when nobody's there cleaners can hear the sound of kids splashing playing and laughing

  15. We have a blackwater river in N.C that people become missing at all the time, I think it's got alot to do with the coyote, black bear, alligator, bobcat, red wolf, panther and multitude of venomous snakes that inhabit the area.

  16. Would you consider doing a video covering the grim photography of The Civil War? I did a bit of research myself and I believe it would be golden!! Just saying. Keep up the awesome work!! Love your videos!!!

  17. Hi. I visited Himeji last Summer and Okiku's well stories varies and your version doesn't seems right. The lord stole one of the 10 dutch plates and framed Okiku. It was made public so she threw herself into the well. Her ghost comes out every night and count the plates.

  18. Why this is the Dumbest Entry to date:

    A. It would've been far more appropriate around Halloween, instead of Thanksgiving
    B. Most of these stories all sound the same, i.e. young maiden drowns, a curse is placed on body of water
    C. Showing a Desert Storm video game to simulate a WWII naval battle unless we really did have Blackhawk Helicopters during the war.
    D. The real reason ppl ghost hunt at night is because it's spookier for the viewers watching.

  19. A ghost. I still don't believe in ghosts. I think ghosts are more visible at night because people can't see clearly in the dark, and might mistake something to be a ghost.

  20. like the video's…but we dont need a reminder every video you have merch for sale…yes we know so does every yt channel….smells of desperation man!!!

  21. Ever heard about " casa matusita" Peruvian legend of a famous haunted house .. south America has many stories but this one in Peru is really famous

  22. I live about 15-20 minutes from White Rock Lake here in Irving and I've never heard of the Lady of the Lake. Quite interesting to learn about.

  23. Can we keep the original music threw out the video? Besides the content and the name of the channel, that is one of the coolest things while watching…Ohhh and Carl’s voice

  24. I know the Hessians who fought in the Battle of Fort Montgomery, the battle right where Hessian Lake is located were from the Von Trumbach Regiment and the Jagers – the German marksman recruited from huntsmen, fought at the lake. The lake is right on the grounds of Bear Mountain State Park and there is a museum that has the details about the battle. To be honest I was rather vague on the stories because I think a lot of battle sites have ghost stories attached to them. Another reason it might be called Hessian Lake is the fact the Hessians march past there frequently – like the mountain itself there might be more than one reason it got its name.

  25. You mixed 2 pools up in #10. The pool you mentioned is in Australia but Victoria Falls (which also has a devils' pool) is in Africa.!!
