The following report was sent into our website by Amanda on June 4, 2012:
“It all started one cold, rainy summer night. I was home alone, sitting on the couch watching my favourite movie, Dear John, when all of a sudden the TV turns off by itself and I hear a knocking at the window. I look, but only left to see nothing.
So, I decided to turn the TV back on and continue watching my movie, but it wouldn’t work. I checked around the TV and all the cables were unplugged. I was confused, so I decided to plug the cables back in then turn on the TV.
Once it went on it landed on a television show that I usually watch, The News. I started watching it when I heard another knock on the window. But again, left to see nothing. So, like any other person, I ignored it and started watching TV again.
It was fine until another 15 minutes or so, when a news report on Wasaga Beach came on. Then I heard a crack from above my TV where a painting is hung. The painting had fallen just by my TV, leaving me terrified. I KNEW something was not right.
My dog looked at me, but not in my eyes like he usually does. He was concentrated on something behind me. I turn around to see a bright flash then a man on my back porch. I run to get my phone to dial 911 but as soon as I punch in the numbers my phone dies, it was at full battery.
I keep my phone charger in a drawer in the kitchen. I pulled it out of the drawer to find the cord broken, it wasn’t broken this morning!!!!
At this point, I ran outside to my neighbour’s house and told him everything that happened. He asked me to describe the man, so I did. He was average-sized, white skin, with a black hoodie and jeans. He had big brown eyes, blood-shot, he looked like he was very drunk and soaking wet.
My neighbour pulled out his newspaper and showed me a picture of a man like I had described. “Him?” “YES!” I shouted. I grabbed the paper from him. “This man committed suicide today by jumping off the blue bridge down at beach 1.”
Oh my goodness. I was so terrified. I only saw him once again, but he gave me a friendly smile, though!”
