Two ghost-hunters had to be rescued after becoming trapped in Derry’s best known haunted house.It seems two very particularly interested ghost hunters,had no concerns for their own public safety.
The historic building has been vacant for decades and has fallen into such a state of disrepair that the building and the area has been cordoned off for a number of years because of fears that it could collapse.Their were severe enough issues with the old abandoned building,that nobody should have been there, let alone at night.
A emergency call came in about two folks needing emergency rescue, from the old building.A fire crew was called to the scene to help the two men to safety.
The incident happened on Saturday, March 13, but details of it only emerged,recently.
A spokesperson said: “We received a call at 7:24pm to a report of an incident at premises at the Culmore Road area of the city on Saturday 13th February.
“One fire appliance from Northland Fire Station was deployed to the scene of two men requiring rescue assistance from a property in the area.
“Firefighters were able to rescue the two men using keys provided by the property’s keyholder. Both men were uninjured.”
The NIFRS said the rescue operation lasted for around one hour.
It is understood the two men told their rescuers they were interested in ghosts and that’s why they were within the walls of Boom Hall.
