A man convinced his late uncle’s spirit has returned has caught a lamp turning on on its own in the living room.
Reddit user hennnnygawd re-watched the home security camera footage to find a large floor lamp turning on at the spot where his uncle used to sit.
He explained in the post that his relative had passed away from stage four cancer just over a week ago and the paranormal sighting was caught by his aunt.
The post read: “My aunt has been staying with her parents but caught this a few days after his funeral.
“The light that turns on sits right above where my uncle would relax and would always want that light on for his comfort.”
The CCTV camera installed at the corner of the living room covers a wide range of the house including the stairs and part of the kitchen.
It is clear that there is a spotlight switched on behind the sofa as well as the kitchen lights.
Few seconds later, the arc-shaped floor lamp suddenly turns on when there is no one in the house and it remains on till the end of the clip.
The user explained that the only way to turn on the floor lamp is by pushing the tile switch on the floor and that he believed his late uncle’s spirit had returned to visit the house.
He added: “He battled stage 4 cancer for almost two years and passed away surrounded by loved ones in the same room this video was taken.
“He told us he would always find his way back.”
Some viewers believed the deceased could communicate with their loved ones through electricity.
One said: “Shortly after my father died, the shower light would turn off for about 30 seconds and turn back on at random times while I was in there.
“My father used to play jokes on us while we were in the shower growing up and walk by and flip the light switch off to mess with us.”
Others said they could smell their late parent’s pipe smoke when they were alone.
As much as it sounds like a supernatural encounter, a few said it could just be some rodents stepping on the switch by accident or even a technical fault.
