Footage of a mysterious pile of bones in Google Maps images of Chernobyl has left viewers feeling creeped out and claiming the remains were of "human" origin.
In the video, uploaded on TikTok by user @googlemapsfun, they show the inside the hollow remains of the power plant that is still just about standing.
The Ukrainian town was evacuated after the explosion of Reactor 4 in 1986 and has been uninhabited ever since.
Footage shows different angles inside the huge globe-shaped derelict structure before zooming in on a strange feature on the floor.
In the grassy undergrowth, there appears to be a large number of bones all arranged together near the centre of the room with what looks like femers and possibly a skull.
The weird video has been watched more than 4.3 million times since it was uploaded three days ago, on February 20, and people have been commenting on the odd Google Maps sighting.
One person reckoned: "It’s human bones."
"Those look human," said another person.
Sounding excited by the macabre find, one user said: "And now I want to go look there hahaha."
It's more likely the bones belong to an animal because the town has been uninhabited for decades and the people who died from acute radiation sickness in the days after the blast were treated in hospital and given proper burials in concrete coffins – because they were still radioactive after death.
Large mammals such as bears, wolves, lynx, bison, deer, and moose have since made Chernobyl their home as wildlife reclaims the abandoned site.
