Delivery man stumbles upon abandoned hospital, fears zombie apocalypse

Patients and doctors were conspicuous in their absence
  • @christophhooton

It looked like the cold open of an episode of the Walking Dead. A truck pulls up to a building before the driver enters to find an eerily quiet dilapidated hospital, calling down the corridor in the hope of finding signs of life and to no avail.

*Scroll down for the video*

The facility was on the route of a UPS employee in the US, who filmed  its inherent creepiness and posted the YouTube video to Reddit.

"So I drive for UPS and I get to this nursing hospital that I literally deliver to every day," he wrote alongside the clip. "There are no cars outside, no signs of life at all. The door is open so I walk in and there isn't a soul there. No patients, workers, nothing.

"The lights are on and there is stuff scattered like it's been raided during the apocalypse. It was very creepy walking in."

The video quickly took off with people desperate to know where exactly all the patients had gone, with the original poster struggling to come up with answers.

"The place is a nursing type place" he wrote. "Old people who need round the clock care and such. I haven't called the police or anything like that just because I'm sceptical of it being anything more than them just closing up shop.

"Albeit this means they closed up shop REALLY abruptly but meh. I'm gonna swing by tomorrow, delivery package or not and see if it looks the same with unlocked doors, lights on, etc."

Godspeed sir, I hope you're packing weaponry and medikits.
