Hello, is this thing on? Um..hi, my name is Jacob Donners and I am 23 years old. Honestly,I don't know why I am making this recording . Maybe to get some things off my chest ? I was fifteen when it happened. I was walking to a park near my house to meet up with some friends. It was late, maybe 8:00 and the sun was setting. I was about a block away when all the lights on the street went out, throwing me into pitch blackness. The next thing I knew I was standing near a playground in a park at the dead of night. There were no sounds except my breathing. It was foggy out, and I was bewildered. This was not the park that I was going to. It looked older, and the playground equipment was rusty and dirty. There was a street behind me and no sidewalk, and the park was surrounded by what looked like a forest. I was frightened at first but became curious as to what was happening. So I headed into the forest. It was pitch black and I could not see for a few seconds, but my eyes adjusted eventually. What I found was unholy weird. There were exact duplicates of the playground in the forest. The same chipped paint, rusted bars, still swings, the whole thing. I was turning around to walk back the way I came when I heard a sound behind me. The sound of leaves crunching. I stood still, listening but hearing nothing else. I got the heck out of that forest and ran past the playground into the middle of the street. The fog thickened and I heard twigs crunching, then no sound at all. I looked at the playground behind me. Through the trees, just at the edge of the forest was one of the duplicate playgrounds. What I saw freaked me out badly. I had a phone on me, a Motorola Razr flip phone. I opened it and snapped a picture and started to run down the road. I did not know where I was, I just knew I had to get away. It was while I was running that the car appeared. I froze, like a deer in the headlights, and felt the hard impact and immediate pain of being hit by a car. The world spun and I found myself laying on the sidewalk, my head turned to the side. My entire body hurt like hell. I heard someone yelling to call 911 and then I blacked out. When I came to, I was in a hospital bed. I was found out from a nurse that I had been unconscious for a week and that I had broken several bones when a car had come over the curb and hit me. I still don't have an explanation for what occurred that night. What I do know, is that I never took that route to the park again. So...what has happened since then? Nothing. I have not had this experience again. I tried writing about it on all sorts of forums, looking it up, etc. So far, I have found no one who has had this experience. As for why I made this...well... I am not sure how to say this or if I am allowed to say this..but I was actually asked to do this by a creepy guy wearing sunglasses who showed up at my house in the middle of the night. He asked me a lot of questions and then suggested I make a recording. Then he left. I don't sleep well now. I still have the phone, but I deleted the photo from it. I have the photo on my computer though, but I will never open it again. The picture, when I first saw it, freaked me out. I did not sleep for three days after looking at it. I have to go now, someone just rang my doorbell.
