The only thing scarier than a morgue is probably an abandoned morgue… so if you’re looking for some guaranteed nightmare fuel, a video of someone exploring one will probably do the trick. Youtuber Josh Explores posted this video exploring a supposedly abandoned hospital in California that appears to have been left in almost-pristine condition… and it’s bone-chilling stuff.
According to the video, it’s a hospital in California that was abandoned once it was realized that it was not up to earthquake code; presumably, it wasn’t worth it to put money into it to make it safe. Equipment, toys from the waiting room in the pediatric wing, biohazard wastebins, office supplies, and more were simply left behind. Even the morgue was more or less left intact, tools still left sitting out next to metal tables positioned beneath huge lights. Even paperwork allegedly leftover from autopsies conducted here was left behind.
The morgue is pretty creepy, but the abandoned NICU is pretty chilling as well. As to where to find this gem of an abandoned location, there’s little info to go on… but if you’re inspired to do some exploring, the Salton Riviera, the Griffith Park Zoo, and Murphy Ranch (aka California’s own Nazi camp) are surefire bets for some solid photos.
