A doctor has shared a spooky look at what appears to be the Grim Reaper in an operating theatre just minutes after his colleague performed a surgery.

Dr Jorge Bermejo Kawache Ortega from Mexico shared the clip on his TikTok page where it's since gone viral, amassing 1.6 million views and creeping a lot of people out in the process.

A medical colleague had just finished performing a woman's hysterectomy when a photo was taken of them holding up a jar containing the patient's removed uterus.

But in the background of the operating room at the Clínica del Noroeste in Hermosillo, there's an eerie black shadow which looks remarkably like the mythical being.


Dr Kawache said: "Whether or not you believe in the paranormal and that plane that surrounds us, I’ll leave you with something to reflect on: All surgeons, when entering an operating room, have a constant fight with death to restore people to health.

"Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. 

"No matter how good a surgeon you are, death is always part of our work and is always present.”

In an interview with Jam Press, he added: "A friend of mine in Hermosillo (Sonora State) Mexico sent me a message saying ‘check out this picture real quick’. 

"When I opened it, the first thing I saw was the jar, containing a uterus following an abdominal hysterectomy of a 50-year-old female patient.

"The operation went very well without complications, and the patient was discharged the next day.

"The doctor took the photo of the organ in the Formol preservative to show the patient’s family.

"And of course, the relatives saw the dark silhouette behind the jar and were like ‘oh my God, what the f*** is that?’ They were very scared about this.

"When my friend sent me the picture, I just wanted to share it with my followers. It went viral very quickly here in Mexico, but I didn’t expect that.

"However, the patient was discharged the very next day and was fine so I don’t know, it was just an eerie image."

But that didn't stop the online community from speculating what was spotted in the pic while sharing their own paranormal experiences.

"The spiritual world is more real than this world, it's just that many people underestimate the existence of God and Satan, which is more real than they think," wrote one.

Another said: "When my mum passed, RIP, I talked to her by Zoom and there was a black shadow next to her bed. And that night she left us."

Well, whether you believe in the Grim Reaper or not, there's no denying that's one eerie photo.
