Admit it, many of you are not averse to tickle your nerves by reading creepy urban legends. Especially that Halloween is not far off. Before we made one creep story from each state. Let’s start alphabetically, with Idaho, Iowa, Alabama, Alaska and Arizona.
The legend of native Americans about babies-water is found in several places of America, but is most common in Pocatello — nature Park, Massacre Rocks.
So, once on land the tribe of Shoshone came a severe famine. Mother in despair drowned their children in the river, not to see them die of slow starvation.
Some residents in Idaho claim: sitting on a rock by the river at Massacre Rocks, you hear the cries of babies. Others say: these children grow gills and fins and now revenge, luring victims into the depths.
Iowa: the black angel
Black angel is a 2.5-metre statue at the Oakland cemetery. Dark legends it is wrapped in, probably because of its dark color.
According to one belief, pregnant women can not take place under the statue, otherwise they will lose the child. Others caution: if you touch or kiss (by the way, why?!) the statue, in the next six months will die.
Anyway, the statue is really grim. But there must be monuments in the cemeteries?
Al: the bridge «the gates of Hell»
The history of this bridge in the town of Oxford has its origins in the 1950s. Once off the bridge into the river fell the car. Was it the guy with the girl drowned.
Since then, the bridge 2 are connected to urban legends. The first reads: if you leave the car in the middle of the bridge and turn your lights off, then drowned the pair will appear in the vehicle and leave the seats wet tracks. Second: if you are driving on a bridge on the middle of back — in landscape you will turn into a flame-wreathed portal.
Probably to protect from such «inspections» homegrown Ghostbusters, the bridge was closed to travel. And walking on it is not recommended — the building has strongly decayed.
Alaska: the evil spirits of kushtaka
On the ominous Bermuda triangle, but perhaps you didn’t realize that Alaska itself is a Bermuda triangle.
According to a study by the LA Times, in Alaska — the highest percentage missing.
Although a reasonable to believe that in the harsh Northern state is very easy to get lost and to disappear without a trace, the Indians of the Tlingit, living in Juneau, has its own explanation.
The Tlingit believe in kushtaka — evil spirits. Kushtaka able to take human form and lure the sweet voice of people in godforsaken places.
Arizona: the ghosts of Slaughterhouse canyon
This legend originated during the Gold rush.
Once in the canyon lived a very poor family. One day, dad left to wander around the canyon, hoping to find some food for the kids and spouses and never returned. The family slowly died from starvation. Not being able to hear the moans of hungry children, the mother wearing a wedding dress, killed babies and threw their bodies into the river, and the next day and she died.
And now, to assure local residents, at night in the canyon heard blood-curdling screams of the mother who lost her mind.
