These creepy photos that circulated online grabbed the attention of many netizens.
Facebook user Leslie Ursabia used her Facebook account to share what she captured with her phone's camera. She uploaded a series of pictures of what seemed to be a headless doctor.
She captioned her post with “Anong gagawin mo pag ganito yung nakita mo while at the ER at 12 mn? Mag papaospital ka paba?”
Since Filipinos are known to have different superstitious beliefs because of our rich cultural tradition, many online users argued that Leslie should have alarmed the doctor upon seeing his headless his image.
It is widely believed that a person who appears headless in photos may face imminent danger or even death. Superstitious people who believe in this suggest that those who appear headless on their photos should be made aware so they can and burn their clothes in order to prevent the curse.
Leslie then explained the reality behind the photos she captured. She said:
“Para po sa mga nag pm at nag tatanong dito, nag susulat lang siya. Subsob lang po talaga sa trabaho literally. No, hindi ko po pinakita ung picture sa kanya, tinapik, binatukan, or sinabihan na magpalit at sunugin ang damit. Di ko alam yung mga pamahiin nay an and That would be weird for both of us, di po kami mag kakilala. Salamat po sa mga concerned sa sitwasyon at sa doctor.”
