Nov 96 "Pulled Out of Bed" AN4/CE4
Date of Encounter: Early to Mid November, 1996
Place of Encounter: Witness Residence in Rural Eau Claire, WI
Classification: AN4 or CE4
Local Evaluation: Unexplained
Significance: Moderate to High
The witness was lying in bed, [CL Note: She sleeps on the Right
side of the bed]. She was asleep when she was awakened by
something touching her on the shoulder, [CL Note: She was not
sure which shoulder, but thinks she was lying on her right side,
the touch was probably on the left]. She indicates that she felt
a presence on the right side of the bed, next to the wall. At
that point, she felt something/someone grab her feet. She was
instantly flipped over and landed on top of her husband. At that
point she felt herself being pulled out of bed, in the direction
of the foot of the bed.
She indicates that she tried to scream and
kick, but was unable to. [CL Note: She indicates that she
initially felt that she could, but subsequently, on trying,
found she could not]. As she was being pulled toward the foot of
the bed, she indicates that she dragged her arms behind her,
across her husband's chest. At the point when she was 1/2 of the
way out of the bed, her memory of the event ends.
The next thing she remembers is standing in
the kitchen in her night gown. She remembers looking towards the
East facing windows, which were "flipped out" - as if
the windows were on hinges. [Note: the kitchen slide open, and
do not hinge out. It is also notable that this was mid November,
and was therefore cold outside] She felt that she had somehow
come in through the window.
While standing in the kitchen, she observed a
bright light outside, approximately above the house, slightly to
the east. The light shown in the window, projecting onto the
kitchen floor. [Note: She initially thought it was a yard light,
but when she investigated on subsequent nights, she noted that
the yard light does not project onto the floor, but onto the
North wall of the kitchen].
She indicates that she felt "weird, but
'going back to bed now'...". She also indicates that she
felt a hand, which she described as "comforting", on
her shoulder [She felt at one point that this might have been
the entity of a CE4 event in 1995, whom she referred to as
"Marcus"]. This entity seemed to convey a
"reassurance that its OK, go to sleep". At that point
she went back to bed and fell asleep.
A short time later she awoke in fright,
feeling very upset about what had happened. This event still
frightens her. Also, roughly the day after the encounter, her
shoulder [CL Note: not sure which one] felt sore. This continued
for several [not sure how many] days after that. In
addition, the family discovered the ground traces in the back
yard within a few days of this event.
None. Her husband was in bed, but did not
respond to her attempts to awaken him. He has no memory of the
event In addition, the house is very close to the highway, with
no intervening trees to block the view. Thus any object
positioned over the house might have been clearly visible from
Unknown, since the exact date of the
encounter is not known.
Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check:
No known objective phenomenon would account
for this experience.
Classification: AN4 or CE4
Local Evaluation: Unexplained,
Significance: Moderate to High, due to
the possibility that a CE4 occurred, the occurrence of possible
ground traces from the event, and the willingness of the witness
to pursue follow up investigation.
