The authenticity of a video circulating early this morning on social media showing giant spider-like creatures ripping sleeping residents from their Beijing highrise bedrooms has been confirmed.
‘These creatures are terrifying,’ reported Gorko International journalist Mila Wolfeschlegelstein from an improvised bunker (overturned automobiles, rubble) in Chaoyang, ‘and they are definitely five, six storeys tall.’
She confirmed that there were hundreds of the creatures wreaking havoc on the infrastucture of the Chinese capital and feeding upon the residents of the city.
‘They have discovered the highrises are a good bet for a high-protein snack,’ joked the correspondent, now in a hoarse whisper, clearly frightened out of her mind. ‘Where is Chinese Guh-ji-la when you need her.’
The video pixelated and the shattering of windows in the distance and wild screaming could be heard.
‘They are moving methodically east, so I think I’ll be o-‘ was Mila’s final dispatch.
The Gorko International has only one other article.
