Interesting Facts about Cry Baby Bridge:
Some locals claim that one night, a couple with a new baby crossed the bridge in a heated argument. They had been fighting because of the incessant crying of the new baby. Even as they drove across the bridge it wailed and whined and the woman, in a fit of rage, finally got out of the car, pulled the infant from its seat and flung it over the side of the bridge into the creek below. Then, the couple drove off, leaving the child for dead.
Lottsford Road has been known as “The Dumping Grounds” to local police because of the dozens of dead bodies that have been left along the road and in the surrounding trees since the 1940’s.
Ghosts of Cry Baby Bridge:
Cry Baby Bridge visitors claim to see apparitions of the infant being hurled over the railing on nights when the moon is particularly bright. Disembodied sounds of the baby crying have also been reported. Starless nights are most likely to elicit paranormal effects at the bridge.
