This is a story of a Nurse who witnessed a ghost in 1989 in a London hospital….
Margaret was on shift in the hospital when a young girl was rushed in to Intensive care because she had been involved in a terrible car accident. She was a young girl with pig tails aged about 10 years ago covered in blood and clutching a teddy bear.
The girl was in a terrible way and was in alot of pain. She cried and screamed. Margaret held the other hand that was free as they rushed her down the coridoor quick.
Her and Margaret exchanged eye contact and she whispered to Margaret.
“Save me, please help me” she said as loud as she could to Margaret.
“You will be fine I promise” Margaret said back softly.
They rushed her into intensive care.
Margaret stayed and held her hand as they worked hard to help the girl. She was in alot of pain.
“Please I want my mummy. Dont let me die. Please save me” said the girl crying looking at Margaret.
Margaret clutched her hand
“Be strong you will be fine. Your mummy will be here soon. I promise” she spoke comforting the little girl.
The girl looked at Margaret and then she went quiet and her eyes froze. Her heart monitor beeped as her heart had stopped.
They began trying to resusitate the girl and her hand became so still it simply slipped from Margarets hand.
“Please save her” said Margaret loud.
But she didnt recover and they eventually stopped.
“I am sorry Margaret – I am afraid she is dead. Time of death is 22.15” said the doctor. There was silence in the room as everyone felt sadness. A tear rolled down Margarets eye.
It was a year later, Margaret was working on the night shift and it was a quiet evening in the hospital. The nights was drawing in early and it was dark.
The night reached 10pm at night. The doctor asked Margaret to go and get some items from storage which was now set in a dark old part of the hospital no longer used and the lights was all off as no longer used in this section.
Margaret headed down the coridoor into the slightly lit ward of the hospital. It was just her, a darkly lit coridoor and the echo of her own footsteps.
Then she became aware of the sound of a child singing somewhere up front. Then on her pathway Margaret seen a young girl stood facing the wall with her back to her.
The girl was singing a nursery rhyme quietly.
Margaret approached. She was aware a family had been in the hospital visiting and assumed it was one of their children wandering about.
She approached the child who wore a dress and had pigtails.
Margaret stood about five feet away from the girl.
“Hello, are you ok? Are you lost?” Asked Margaret.
The child continued singing and then slowly began turning round.
She now faced Margaret singing.
Margaret froze in terror as she recognized the girl from the year before who had died in the crash.
Her face was all damaged and covered in scars.
Margaret froze in fright as the young girl continued singing her nursery rhyme.
She stared with a fixed stare at Margaret. She never blinked and her face was pale glowing white.
Margaret quickly turned and walked fast the way she came knowing the girl stared at her as she headed away.
There was something more terrifying about the girl than the girl had been when she was alive.
She stopped and looked back and the girl was floating towards her an couple of inches off the floor. She clung onto the teddy bear still.
The girl came closer and closer and the before Margarets eyes – vanished.
Margaret fled the area and returned into the populated area of the hospital.
She told her colleagues what she had seen.
Margaret was surprised to hear that a little girl with pigtails had been reported by patients late at night as she stood staring at them next to their beds…..
