When a German student found an open metal door in the basement of his university, he couldn’t help but satisfy his curiosity. And, as he entered the pitch-black space that lay beyond, he had absolutely no idea of what he was about to discover.
Reddit user stats_quo explained in 2014 that he came across the door in the basement of Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in the German town of Krefeld, not far from Dusseldorf. Although other students knew about the door, this was apparently the first time that any of them had found it lying open.
And our hero didn’t waste any time when he realized that he had an opportunity to steal a glimpse of what was behind the door. Indeed, he made his way into the darkness, with only the light from the hallway outside and the flash on his phone to guide him.
