I am looking for two episodes of an Unsolved Mysteries-type show. This is probably from the 90s or early 2000s and I can't find them on the Unsolved Mysteries episode guide so they must be from a different show.
. The first one is about a man in a building. It's late and he wants to use the bathroom, but whenever he tries to enter, some force pushes him out. The next morning it's revealed that the door was actually to the elevator and it was broken, so if he had entered, he would have fallen down the shaft
. The second one is about a man who's drowning in the sea, and a female swimmer rescues him. But later no one can find the swimmer and it's revealed that she was a ghost that drowned there a long time ago
I found two ghost-based shows with formats similar to Unsolved Mysteries: The Unexplained (’96-2000), which fits your time range, and My Ghost Story (2010-present). Is one of those yours? I can’t find the plot-synopses yet.
