IT was supposed to be the special moment they saw their child for the first time, but the ultrasound brought a shock to this couple.
Because their beautiful baby doesn’t seem to be alone in the womb with an unexpected presence lurking just behind the unborn infant’s head. A copy of the scan from the ultrasound uploaded online shows the foetus reclining in mum’s tummy while the mysterious figure stands watching from one side of the image.
Yet when the shocked parents asked their sonologist for reassurance, the doc could offer no answers only saying that they had never seen anything like it.
Reddit user Luigi Vampa, who shared the scan, said the ultrasound was a friend’s and that the parents were “freaked out” by what they saw. “Interestingly enough the baby was born 2 months premature like get me the hell out of here,” he wrote.
“Everything is fine now. They asked the tech who did the ultrasound what it was they didn’t really have an answer besides they haven’t seen something like that before.”
Visitors to the site speculated about the presence with some saying it resembled a Hindu goddess, others that it was a mermaid and some that it was satan.
Nearly 400,000 people have seen the image since it was uploaded to Imgur yesterday night.
