VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. –  A family is confused about what is happening to their 4-year-old child. At first they were skeptics, and now following psychological testing,  they are convinced there is a ghost inside their child.

U.S. Marine Sgt. Val Lewis died in a bombing explosion October 23, 1983 in Beirut, Lebanon. Yet 4-year-old Andrew, who lives in Virginia Beach, remembers it as his death. His mother tells WTKT-TV that he is recalling memories that no one his age should know.

More questions came up when the family went to Sgt. Val Lewis' gravesite.  Andrew went right to the grave and put flowers down.  He walked to another grave and said, "That's my friend."  Another Marine was buried next to Sgt. Lewis.  Five other soldiers lost their lives in the bombing in Beirut.
