A woman in New York baffled social media users after she experienced what seems like a plot straight out of a horror movie. Imagine feeling a cold breeze in your bathroom and upon investigating where its source was, you come across a whole new apartment behind your bathroom mirror.
Samantha Hartsoe documented the complete discovery on TikTok as she explored the secret apartment discovered behind the bathroom mirror in her New York City apartment.
The 26-year-old woman shot into the limelight after she uploaded a four-part saga on TikTok explaining how she found a hidden apartment behind her mirror. In the first part, captioned as “Seriously never would I have expected to find this … and I documented all of it, she showed that cold breeze strong enough to move her hair was blowing in her flat despite having no vent and after searching the whole apartment for its source she found it was coming from behind her bathroom mirror.
‘The moment of truth,’ reads a sticker over the video as she removes the mirror to find a hole behind it with few electrical wires. The first part has 7.4 million views and kept the viewers on the edge of their seats as the story gets creepier.
Hartsoe with help from her friends and roommate, wearing a face mask, carrying a torch and hammer, climbed through the hole to come across a hallway with a hidden room at the end.
‘I have to figure out what’s on the other side of my bathroom,’ she states before jumping through the hole into the eerie space alone. After walking through the abandoned room, she found it actually was a whole three-bedroom apartment.
She found that it was being renovated before it was abandoned and it was littered with some trash bags and a water bottle. Filming the whole scenario for her viewers, she eventually found its front door which she locked and returned to her own apartment and placed the mirror back in its place.
Check out a news report on the incident she posted on her Instagram:
Millions of viewers were left frightened by the series and the cliffhangers after each part. Many had concerned for her as it had been three hours since she went inside the hole and hadn’t posted an update.
