An American mother-of-two was left terrified after she thought she saw a ghost sleeping next to her child on a baby monitor.

Maritza Elizabeth, from Illinois, glanced at the screen expecting to see her son snuggled up in his blanket.

Instead, what she saw was a another child’s face that she didn’t recognise looking back at her on the display.

On Facebook, Maritza said “So last night I was positive there was a ghost baby in the bed with my son. I was so freaked out I barely slept.”

Once she awoke in the morning, she started to investigate, only to discover that it was actually the label of the mattress showing underneath the sheet.

“It turns out my husband just forgot to put the mattress protector on when he changed the sheets,” she said.

“I could kill him.”
