Item #:SCP-4000

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Area is to be closed off from public with guards patrolling the perimeter. guards are to be switched out every three hours to avoid being effected by SCP-4000.

Description: Object represents that of a normal rain tunnel made of concrete with the entrance starting at the end of a drainage ditch located in Phoenix Arizona. The ditch has been a popular location for skateboarders to film their tricks. However Skateboarders hardly ever feel the effects of the tunnel as they do not stay in the location for long. SCP-4000 was officially discovered by the foundation after Dr.Dalgord and Dr.███ investigated the area upon hearing rumors of strange and supernatural occurrences. Once entering the tunnel or spending an extended amount of time in the ditch zone, victims will feel compelled to go deeper and deeper into the tunnel. Upon reaching the 236 ft. mark victims will start to experience symptoms of psychosis,hallucinating heavily and becoming delusional saying unusual things about SCP-4000 and may even become violent. At this point Authorized personnel may escort the victim,now referred to as SCP-4000-1 to be institutionalized or in severe cases exterminated.

Addendum 4000-01:Treatment of Victim

Attempts to restore SCP-4000-1 to their normal state have proven ineffective so far. Giving them standard psychiatric ward care,yet SCP-4000-1 refuses to eat meals and has had to be fed food and liquids through a tube. Standard atypical SCP-4000-1 is given standard atypical antipsychotics at a dose of 600mg.

Addendum 4000-02: Victim Activity

Video surveillance shows that the individual affected by SCP-4000 sits awake at night and doesn't sleep. This lack of rest ay be contributing to the effects of the tunnel,as further sleep deprivation could cause SCP-4000-1 to become even more delusional and unhealthy.
