Photos with Disturbing Backstories

Frightening photos with disturbing backstories.

On August 20th, 1975, two brothers, Sean and Michael McQuilken, climbed to the top of Moro Rock and took this photo. Little did they know, they were seconds away from being struck by lightning. They luckily survived, but one other person on the mountain wasn’t so lucky, and Sean killed himself in 1989.

In 2013, a photo of two Dutch engineers hugging was taken. This was because they were trying to avoid the fire that caught on the wind turbine they were working on. Sadly, they did not survive.

This photo is of a soldier in 1916. The reason his face looks freaky is because he experienced shell shock.

This photo is of Blanche Monnier, a woman who was trapped in a room for 25 years! She fell in love with a lawyer, but her mother strongly disagreed with the romance.
