of most actual events at the CRCMH is a bit vague . I do remember
it was summer but it must have been late summer as it was dark that
evening. I had come up with a few mates and we bunked each other up
over the wall as per usual - but I wasn't with the usual Pwürg
people I knew, and I didn't know my way round enough at nite. My past
experiences had been wandering around in the day, and I remember the
warped floor in the hall and the broken piano with the really eerie
sound - not to mention x-rays, stretchers and a Resusci-Ann doll.
As we walked
towards the main hospital building, I knew something dodgy was going
on coz I had seen Professor Isaac Mangang's car parked some way up
the road. This should have made me chill out as the Pwürg lot
were probably there, and that anything dodgy would have been down
to them. I heard some faint noises coming from the upstairs of the
building and a few of us stopped walking. At this point I was in two
minds - it's probably the wind or it's Pwürg upstairs fucking
about. We carried on and went inside the front, where we walked down
some corridors and went into the chapel - where "conveniently"
there was a large black candle, lit and placed in an alcove. This
was very poor, very tacky and sorry - but everyone knew that it was
crap and that it was highly likely that Pwürg put it there -
but where were they now?
that to be fair it set our minds thinking in the right way though.
We left the chapel and walked down the other corridors and just snooped
about. We went upstairs with our torches which had low battery power
- all we had was dim orange light. We heard noises upstairs, and this
started to freak me coz Julie and I were actually looking for people
hiding up there but there didn't seem to be anyone there. We decided
to go downstairs again - too spooky.
We were back
in the main corridor downstairs and had stopped walking when, for
no apparent reason, a length of chain which had been hanging from
the ceiling decided to drop on my shoulder. This freaked me out biggie
styley. After that I heard a noise upstairs - and that was it! Off
I went out the door, across the front and over the wall. Normally
I needed a bunk up to get over that wall, but that night six foot
of brick was not a problem - I wanted out. However, I would like to
point out that Peter beat me over the wall, so he was obviously more
crappo than me!
I can't really
remember what I was thinking. Half of me knew that Pwürg were
or had been there, but I was just sooo spooked out. The chain falling
on me was just bad luck as I remember speaking to someone like MC
1201 afterwards who said that they had hung the chain there, but the
fact that it fell on me was pure chance as they had all been hiding
upstairs. Maybe it wasn't just luck - could've been The Flincher!?
That's my memory of it anyway.
18th March 2002
from Prof. Isaac Mangang:
It's great to finally hear about the events surrounding this Pwürg
organized prank on a bunch of girls - so thanks immensely "G.G"
for your recollection. I will point out, however, that although there's
a lot in there that sounds familiar, there's a couple of things I'd
like to add.
I am absolutely convinced that the above events occured during the
daytime. I'd bet my life on it. It may have been very late afternoon
- setting sun and long shadows - but there's no way that it was the
dead of night or anything - we're not that cruel. I vividly
recall us setting up around lunchtime, wandering about the place with
our walkie-talkies like producers on a film set. Remember though that
some internal parts of the CRCMH are still very dark in daylight hours
- not that it has to be dark in order to scare people.
I also clearly remember actually watching the "victims"
run to the wall from upstairs - which would have been virtually impossible
I keep thinking that we did something else involving a dummy on that
occasion (getting the idea from that fake corpse in the Animal Lab).
Maybe we didn't, but the idea rings all sorts of bells, and of course,
there's no saying that the dummy part of the prank actually worked
- if there was one in the first place. Perhaps it was just moaning
and chains after all. Either way, it's wonderful to have some kind
of clarification on this obscure and long forgotten incident (it only
came back to me whilst compiling the Virtual Tour) - and it's equally
as gratifying to hear that I was stupid enough to practicallly give
the whole game away by not hiding my car properly. Typical...
