NDTV cannot verify if the guard was talking to someone or not. Reddit users, meanwhile, pointed out that the guard could be playing a joke.
"Alright that's pretty weird. Either the guard is playing a joke on the cameras or this is pretty hard to explain," the user commented. "He knows his colleague is sitting in the basement watching the CCTV," added another.
However, some users were scared after watching the footage. "This first episode was jaw dropping. The wheelchair scene blew my mind," one of them commented.
The security guard is then seen pointing towards the doctor's office and even escorting the 'ghost patient' there.
The incident took place at Finochietto Sanatorium, a private care centre located in Buenos Aires.
After the footage went viral on social media, the spokesperson for the care centre told local media that the door was faulty and kept opening multiple times.
"As it was broken, it opened by itself 28 times during the 10 hours between Thursday night and Friday early morning," the Daily Star quoted the spokesperson as saying.
The spokesperson added that the security guard appears to be writing something on the clipboard paper, but no name is mentioned in the register.
