The following report was sent into our website by Ryan on May 31, 2013:

“This just happened the other night, long after the rest of my family had gone to bed. I had stayed up to read, and at around 2am decided to finally go to bed. I brushed my teeth, changed, etc. and finally threw over the covers to my bed and sat down, marking the page in my book where I left off and setting it down on my bedside table (which is attached to the bed itself, held by screws). I’ve had this bed for a few years and it’s very sturdy.

After setting my book down, the entire bedside table broke off and fell forwards onto the ground causing my book, glasses, and bedside lamp to fall down. In the split second this happened, the lamp (which was on) flickered on and off with an unnatural white-blue light. And I saw, in the centre of my room, a black mass, not very big, somewhat standing there before the lamp went out for good. Surprising even myself, I sat there for a few seconds in the darkness before jumping up and running into the hallway to meet my parents, who also heard the noise.

Upon inspection, the lamp remains plugged in, the bulb screwed in and not broken. However when I try to turn the light on, it remains dark. The back of the bedside table also has strange scratch marks at the bottom. How I still sleep in my room baffles me.”
