In May 2008, two college students went exploring inside the abandoned Pennhurst State School and Hospital in East Vincent, Pennsylvania.
Originally known as the Eastern Pennsylvania State Institution for the Feeble-Minded and Epileptic, the facility was surrounded by controversy before its closure in 1987. Mentally and physically disabled patients lived in horrific conditions and were often slapped, beaten, and assaulted by the staff. All of this was exposed in a shocking television news report in 1968, and nine employees were indicted for abusing their patients in 1983.
The facility has been the subject of many ghost hunts, so it would make sense that a couple of students would want to check the place out for themselves and film their experience.
