Deep Bench: National Paranormal Day

WAUSAU, Wis. (WZAW) -- Seeing is believing right? Not always.

Despite how tempting it would be to believe that if you can't see, hear or touch something, it doesn't exist, there are many people who seem certain that they have in fact witnessed or even come into direct contact with something that can't be explained by science.

Things like UFOs or ghosts, do they exist? And if not, why do people claim sightings and close experiences?

Wednesday, May 3 is National Paranormal Day, a day all about trying to answer these questions.

Shawn Blaschka from the Wausau Paranormal Research Society joined WZAW News at 4 on Wednesday to talk about why there could be more reports of paranormal activity in Central Wisconsin. He also shared some haunted stories.
