Years ago I worked in a city as a paid EMT. Our crew would consist of 2 EMTs or one paramedic and one EMT. I did 12 hour shifts usually 6pm-6am or 7pm-7am. Sometimes the nights felt very long, especially if we were not too busy.
Ambulance crews would stage throughout the city to make it easier and faster to get to emergency calls. On occasion crews would meet up in the middle of the night just to pass time and hang out.
My partner and I met up with 2 other crews one night, it was about 2:30 in the morning and the city was fairly quiet. We stood out in the parking lot at one of the 3 hospitals that we would stage at.
After some time we were approached by a gentleman who appeared to be in his mid 60's. He wore a light jacket over his dress shirt and a tie, his hair was clean cut and white. This man was not very tall, maybe a couple inches taller than me. He didn't talk, just smiled and made an acknowledging gesture to both my partner and I, then walked away.
A couple minutes later I told my partner I needed to use the rest room and I would go into the Killington Building because it was an easier access both in and out. Inside I found that the bathroom was occupied so I waited in the front lobby with a security guard who was taking a break. After a couple minutes of idle chat he informed me that the bathroom was free. I stood and turned to walk away and noticed a portrait on the wall behind me. It was the gentleman from the parking lot. The kindly looking man was now looking down at me from the wall.
I told the security guard how I had just seen the old man outside and that it was an odd experience because he never said a word to us then just walked away. The security guard said that I could not have seen this man tonight but I argued the fact and he insisted that it was impossible because Mr. Killington had passed away 2 years earlier.
I told the guard that I know what I saw and had 5 other people who saw this man at the same time... I noticed the beautiful African American had turned a milky grey in color and proceeded to tell me he had heard stories about Mr. Killington visiting "his" building on several occasions, been seen in the halls on the upper floors. This security guard never believed the stories... Before.
