The Swinging Cord

A couple of months ago in one of our tenants flats at work I witnessed what could be some mild poltergeist activity, as I have exhausted any possible explanation (but I still don't rule that out). Me and a colleague had assisted the tenant into bed and made her comfortable, we went back into her living room to write in her care plan. We both sat on the tenants sofa and opposite was one of the flats emergency pull cords which was moving/swinging in a random manner. We had not touched the cord, the cord was not touching anything that could cause it to move, all windows closed, no source of air or wind or breeze either from outside or from us (we were sitting down before we noticed the swinging, but the rate of swinging could not of been caused by any moments made by us I am am certain of that). The only other being in the room was a fly and I really, really doubt that a fly landing on the cord would cause it to swing so erratically. Nothing else has happened, to my knowledge, before and nothing after.

Hmmm.

Might be worth saying a few words when you're in that room alone. Record it if possible. Even on your phone. Perhaps a previous tenant just wants to say Hello!

I tried this, I have an iOvilus app on my iPhone, but nothing conclusive. I will give it another try at some point though and will keep you informed.

Hello Gaz,

Could the cord swinging be caused by warm air rising/eddies?
I have seen items move quite violently which were stationed above a radiator.
Was the cord assembly above/near a heat source Gaz?

Just a thought.

No Lee, the flats don't have radiators only underfloor heating and that is not sufficient enough for the cord to sway the way it was. It was just wrong the way it moved.

Fair enough buddy, in what way was the moving cord wrong? Was the cord jangling, spinning or both?
