San Diego gas station worker acts like he's seen a ghost

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local gas station worker turned white as a ghost after he says he saw something that looked like a ghost. A surveillance camera captured a black cloud hovering over a gas pump, which later moved to the front door of the gas station.

Last Wednesday, Chevron clerk Andy Fortunato was working the graveyard shift when he noticed the surveillance camera picking up something mysterious.

"First I noticed a small spot," he said.

The 64-year-old has worked at the gas station for three years without incident, but says this strange black cloud made the hair on the back of his neck stand up, and he has no idea what it was.

"I don't really know, first time I saw that thing in my whole life," he said.

For nearly three hours, Andy watched what appeared to be some sort of ghost change shapes and engulf the gas pumps.

"What I've seen, it started at the top of the pump, worked its way down very slowly for about two and a half hours," Andy said.

When store manager Nando Garcia arrived at work at 4:45 in the morning, the vision was gone, so he rolled back the surveillance tape.

"It was just going diagonal, sideways and everything. It was just plain out weird and I was looking inside the store and [Andy] said it was coming toward the door," Nando said.

Nando says he checked the camera and it wasn't smudged, so we ran a theory by Andy: maybe it was a bug? Andy says the camera is just 12 feet off the ground, and if it had a bug on the lens he would have seen it.

So what do the customers think?

"Creepy, very creepy. I don't know if I'll be coming back here at night," customer Jessica Brandon said.

When we interviewed customer Cindy Yuhasz at the same pump the vision attacked, something weird happened.

"The gas pump just stopped working… there's no reason for it not to work, which is weird," she said.

Cindy eventually got her gas. If that wasn't a bug on the lens, our guess is condensation had something to do with it.
