A father was so spooked he refused to take his children to a playground after filming a "haunted" swing moving back and forth in windless and deserted park.

Scotty Denton took three children to visit a playground in Warwick, Rhode Island, on June 23 and was too terrified to get out of the car because of a "playground ghost".

The father live streamed the chilling ordeal on Facebook, which has now been viewed over 4.5 million times.

In the video, a blue swing erratically moves back and forth in the air, freaking out the father and his children.

"We're in the playground and the kids don't want to go anymore because look at this s***," Denton tells the camera.

"This is real, look at this. There's nobody on it, there's no wind."

His daughter points toward the swing and Denton tells her: "Sweetie you can't go on that today."

The family refuse to leave the car and continue to watch the swing's ghost-like moments in the deserted and windless park.

"Look at the other swings, they aren't even moving," he says before his son suggests that somebody may have pushed it.

A Facebook use who appears to be a local in the area commentd on the video saying he drives by the park all the time and sees the swing "going crazy."

"Tom said just the other day it's gonna knock someone out one day lol," the comment read.
