An odd cell phone video from China seems to show some kind of mysterious  creature briefly emerge from a lake to the astonishment of onlookers.

The footage, filmed at a lake in China's Louping County, features a dark object causing ripples on the surface of the water.

When what looks to be another part of the anomaly suddenly pops up out  of the lake, witnesses can be heard gasping and shouting at the strange  sight.

After word of the lake monster spread throughout the local community,  villagers have begun flocking to the site in the hopes of spotting the  beast for a second time.

Check out the video and find out some of the theories for what the creature might have been at the Coast to Coast AM website.
