A couple of urban explorers had a pretty bizarre experience after they discovered a half naked man in a building they thought had been abandoned.
Southampton based Ally Law and his mate Scotty had just managed to get into the derelict former bank when they were confronted by an unexpected topless Chinese man.
Speaking to UNILAD, 19-year-old Ally said:
I climbed up a drain pipe and entered through the roof, only to find some random Chinese dude in there washing!
He didn’t speak English, he sort of agreed to let us down but then as we hit the bottom floor, him and some other guys began screaming and ran down the stairs.
As you can imagine, the guys didn’t fancy hanging around and luckily, they managed to find a fire escape and got the hell out of there.
Ally told us:
At first I thought he was alright because he sort of agreed to let us go down. But once we heard him shouting, I thought: “Oh shit we’re stuck in here and there’s no way out!” I’m not going to lie I was shitting myself!
Ally posted the video to his YouTube channel and he says it has sparked quite a lot of theories as to why the Chinese guys were in there.
A lot of people seem to think they were illegal immigrants, but one girl went one step further, believing they were murderers hiding.
She even claims to have spotted blood on a wall in the video!
Ally added that he really doesn’t know what to think about the whole, bizarre situation:
Honestly, I have no idea what it was about. It was weird because it was 9pm… I thought they were squatting but who knows? It was just all a bit dodgy.
He says although it was pretty tense at the time, now it’s fun to look back on – but maybe it wouldn’t have been if there was no fire escape…
He says the experience definitely hasn’t put him off exploring and he is currently out travelling for a few weeks around Europe with his mates.
They’ve been in Stockholm and tried exploring some underground tunnels but it turned out to be a no go. The guys are now in Poland and are hoping to have a bit more luck there.
Who knows what/who will turn up in the next place they explore…
