  1. I used to live not far from here and in High School my friends and I used to hang out here occasionally. My experiences with Cry Baby Bridge are… Car not wanting to start after being turned off just off the bridge, pant leg being pulled while we were under the bridge itself, heard crying that seemed to be always behind you, a heavy being held down feeling if you sit on the side of the bridge, heard gurgling sounds in the water below. Everyone I’ve been there with and spoken to about this location have all had similar experiences.

  2. A group of friends and i went there one night. We did experience anything but I recorded it all anyways. Well next morning there was baby like hand prints on the outside of the windshield and I watched the video. I saw nothing but heard horses and I believe a buggy on cobble stone.

    • I went with a friend there tonight. Heard swimming noises from the water underneath the bridge and what could be called a baby crying. When we turned around to go back the way we came, we drove off the bridge and something was thrown or hit the car. On the passenger side there is now dents and chipped paint. Will not be going back for a while
