Crybaby bridges are not uncommon in local myths and urban legends and this one has all of the makings of a pretty generic one. People reporting the sound of baby’s crying when you cross the bridge, maybe the sound of children sobbing. This is where it gets a little weirder.
Reportedly, if you leave your car, you’ll return to it to find it surrounded by children’s footprints and sometimes handprints on the window. More importantly, if you leave your car unlocked with the keys in the ignition you’ll return to find it running. There aren’t many details to the origin story of Helltown Cry Baby Bridge, just that a child was thrown from its edge and died below, which is most often the case with all cry baby bridges.
