      Last summer, me and a group of friends had went down to Copley so we can check it out. The part of the hospital we went in was the insane asylum, and so while we were inside, all 4 of us heard a little girls voice scream out of nowhere. There was no one else at the hospital except for us, pretty creepy experience.
