Just a month after the American television network NBC went in search of the mythical Worm of Lagarfljót, ABC News’ Nightline has come to Iceland in search of the creature themselves.
As reported, last February Hjörtur Kjerúlf took a video of what appears to be a long object moving in a snake-like motion across the current of the river feeding into the lake. There was speculation that this was the famed Worm of Lagarfljót, a giant serpent that reportedly lives in the lake for which it is named.
The video went viral, attracting attention as far afield as Japan, and although it was since been debunked as fishing netting tangled in ice, ABC News still wants a piece of the mythical beast action. Last May, the NBC show “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” went in search of the Worm as well.
