Footage Found In The Paris Catacombs

Under the city of Paris, hundreds of miles of tunnels and rooms – many of them unmapped – contain the bones of millions of Parisians. In the 18th century, bones were exhumed from overcrowded cemeteries and dropped into old quarry tunnels. Some of the bones are said to date back more than a thousand years. A minute section – less than a mile – of this underground city of the dead is open to the public. Unsurprisingly, it’s one of the top tourist attractions in the French capital. Due to the looting of skulls and vandalism, security has been tightened in the tourist hotspot. However, there are multiple ‘secret’ entrances to the catacombs, and the video you are about to watch documents the movements of one morbid thrill seeker, whose identity and fate remain a mystery. It’s thought that the videographer was unfamiliar with the underground labyrinth and that he lost his way and eventually died down there in the dark.
