    There is a story of heartbeat bridge in Whiteville/nakina. The story is a girl was killed in a cab on this bridge and her heart was thrown over the bridge by the murderer. If you go to the bridge and turn you car off at night you can hear the heartbeat in your ears so loud that you can definitely tell it is not your own heartbeat.

    My granddaddy lived on Chair factory road his whole life. He lived to be 97 years old and not once did he ever say he heard a heartbeat. I used to play on this bridge a lot when I was younger. The lights at night are most likely hunters spot lighting for deer. Every Halloween my church has a hayride and they used to take us to Heartbeat Bridge. When we got there they would cut off the truck and turn off the lights. All of kids sitting in the back of this big truck at midnight were scared to death. It was so quiet and dark. Once my youth leaders thought we were paranoid enough they would beat on the side of the truck and scare us even more. I am 19 and I still help my church with the hayride. 19 years I have been to that bridge at midnight and sat in the dead quiet and I didn’t hear any kind of heartbeat.
