A video has surfaced of a young boy walking home from school via a local forest where he is visibly attacked by a shadowy figure which investigators are claiming is a spirit.

The boy makes his way along the path before the eerie figure moves towards him before knocking him off his feet.

The Daily Star reports: He holds his arms out but it’s too late, the invisible spirit strikes him to the ground.

Seconds later the shadow disappears from the screen.

The lad gets back on his feet before sprinting off, terrified, down the path.

Some people have speculated about the authenticity of the clip – with many arguing it looks suspiciously like a good old Photoshop job.

“Of course it would happen directly in front of the camera,” one skeptical person commented on the clip.

Earlier this month, a terrified young mom claimed she had been forced out of her flat by evil spirits that scratched her.

And back in February, footage captured the moment a man was dragged from his bed by what he believed to be a ghost.
