A cryptic story featured on “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” has been making rounds on social media and even attracting a lot of reactions from netizens.
KAMI learned that the story was about a “ghost ship” that appears on the sea of Siquijor which became a much-talked-about topic in the entire province.
The rumor is said to have started during the ‘70s when a fisherman heard a loud sound of a ship near his boat.
Since then, the people there are already seeing the “ghost ship” which they called “tayug-tayug” in the middle of the night.
Its loud sound and the tremble it creates are allegedly the indication that the said ship is coming near the island for the people to see.
A video was even presented by a man from Siquijor that showed a light in the middle of the sea.
Because the footage was not clear, the team of Jessica Soho decided to film near the shore to finally end the speculations about the “ghost ship.”
To their surprise, a light appeared on the camera which resembled a ship but it eventually faded.
In an episode of KMJS last Sunday, January 20, a follow-up story finally answered the trending mystery.
Upon further investigations, the team found out that what they saw on the sea was a real ship named “MV Filipinas Iligan.”
Here are the Part 1 and Part 2 video about the mysterious boat:
The video, which already has more than 6.7 million views and number 3 trending on Youtube as of the time of posting, attracted a lot of reactions from netizens.
Here are the reactions from netizens:
“Ako lang ba? If wala ngang paranormal phenomena, it means that those ships are doing something shady, to have routines like that and hindi informed ang coast guard.”
“Kahapon lang natuklasan. Totoo na barko nga yon which is Cokaliong and Transasia na minsan magkasalubong from Ozamiz to cebu route.”
“I wonder mga Pilipino tlaga mahilig maniwala sa ‘sabi-sabi’ at saka kumakalat kasi sa totoo tlaga daming chismoso at chismosa sa bansa.”
