A night in the Lunatic Asylum | My Paranormal Life
Last night me and a few friends decided to go up to the old Porirua Lunatic Asylum, most of the hospital is now closed, has been for a few years now. The closure was the governments idea to reintroduce long-stay patients back into the wider community, I know some patients who had lived in the hospital for most of their adult lives, it was their home and they were more or less evicted from their home.
