Watch This Medium Channel the Ghosts of Two Victims From NYC's Infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Fire

In the afternoon of March 25th, 1911, a fire broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in Greenwich Village, killing 146 garment workers in one of the deadliest industrial accidents ever. The reason the death toll was so high was that it was commonplace for employers back then to lock employees inside in order to prevent unauthorized breaks and theft. When the fire broke out on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors of the building, workers could not escape the smoke or flames. Several leaped out of the windows, falling to their death on the street below. In this video from Bustle, watch as a Medium channels the ghosts/spirits of two sisters who died that day during the fire.
