I live on 4th street in Anderson, IN. Last year, during the end of summer time, my cousin Evan and I went on walk down the railroad tracks on John Street heading in the direction of the Trestle. We were on our way to take pictures of the sunset, but our pace was slow. It became dark quickly. As we grew closer to the bridge, my cousin kept asking me if I saw the person up ahead. (My cousin and I can see and communicate with spirits. I can feel what they have felt. ) I looked up from my camera and in the direction of the bridge. I replied with a no.
When we got a little closer he repeated himself. Again I looked up and saw no one. I thought he was just seeing things. The closer we got, I got this very strong feeling that we should leave. I then told my cousin to stop, but he insisted that we help the girl that was standing on the railing. I grabbed his arm, and that was when I saw her. She jumped down from the railing and ran after us. We turned around and bolted towards my house. Shortly after we started running, I was pushed down the hill, but I didn't fall. I made my way back up the hill and grabbed my cousin's hand and pulled him after me.
We ran a little ways more, and then he was attacked. The girl had dug her nails into his back. I looked back and saw my cousin's grandpa (who is deceased) rip the girl from my cousin's body. At that moment it became very hard for me to breath. My neck began to hurt like I was being choked, and my lungs were burning like they were being filled with water as I gasped for a breath. We finally made it to Second Street, in the clear from the girl.
We slowed our run to a slow jog and made our way home. Once we got home, I looked at my cousin's back because he was complaining that it was burning. He had scratch marks down the middle of his back, ones that neither I nor he could have made because our fingers are too big for the marks that were made. We then told my grandma and took her to the corner of our street to show her where we were attacked. When we got to the corner, without my grandma, we were shocked to find that the girl had followed us to the corner of Third and John.
The next day I did some research about the girl and remembered the 16-year-old girl who was suffering from depression a few years back who tried to hang herself off of the bridge only to end up drowning because the rope snapped before it killed her. Her body was found weeks after the accident by a few fishermen who immediately called the police. To this day neither my cousin or I go to the Trestle at night.
