Melissa Kurtz, 48, was driving her daughter Harper to a beauty pageant when the 13-year-old became bored on the 45-minute journey began taking selfies.
However later the mother-of-two, from Florida, U.S, spotted the ghostly face a young boy lurking on the back seat appearing to reach towards Harper - despite no one else being in the car with them.
Researching the stretch of road they were travelling on, Ms Kurtz discovered that the apparition’s appearance coincided with the anniversary of a death in a road accident that she believes was possibly the same child.
Multiple paranormal investigators analysed the image and couldn’t explain it, with one claiming that it appeared the ghost’s hand was reaching for Harper to warn her to wear a seatbelt.
However Ms Kurtz says she was not scared by the suspected haunting as she claims Harper has always had paranormal things occur around her.
She said: 'Where the picture was taken there was an automobile accident one year ago exactly. When I looked into it, someone had been medevacked away in a helicopter.
'However they would not tell me any specific details when I enquired, which leads me to believe that it was a child, as that might be why they couldn’t provide the information.
'I didn’t notice it until about a month later when I was going through my camera when taking pictures for something else.
'It was a real "Oh my god" moment. I was really shocked by it, incredibly shocked. I ran into the other room and said to friends who were staying with me "you have to see this". Everyone was awestruck.
'I think it’s very important to the world to see that picture because I know it’s genuine and real and we were the only two in the car.
'So many people have hope for the afterlife and this proves it - to me anyway. People [who have seen it] have taken comfort in that.
'Harper didn’t have her seatbelt on and one of the investigators who analysed the photo called Greg Pocha thought [the ghost] could be trying to warn her.
'[Her seatbelt] is something I yell at her about all the time. I’ve had 13 traffic tickets in two years due to her not wearing one. She is very stubborn - though I’m always trying to catch her when she hasn’t got it on.
Hey Melissa, sit down for a minute. I have something to tell you. That's not a guardian angel.
"But Tommy!" you say. "If it's a ghost, why would he be telling her to put a seatbelt on?" Well, hypothetical reader, have you ever heard of a little guy named Casper? Because he was a friendly ghost.
It comes down to this: guardian angels are invisible. They're around us constantly, yes, but they can't be seen. If your life is a big episode of Saturday Night Live, then guardian angels are like Lorne Michaels running around behind the scenes, drinking white wine and making sure everything runs relatively smoothly. Ghosts show themselves from time to time. If this girl has paranormal things happen to her all the time, she's haunted. Your life is slowly going to become the plot to the movie Insidious, and your 13 year-old daughter is gonna be scared to have her picture taken ever again.
P.S. Some weird shit happened in Florida? Color me shocked.
