SUMMER 1995, HICKHAM AIRFIELD, HAWAII, USA, MAUREEN IZON:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A "spooky tales" book reportedly indicated that at Hickam Airfield, Oahu, Hawaii, on Summer 1959, on a warm summer night, 6-year-old Maureen Izon was sleeping soundly on the bottom bunk, when she suddenly felt a bitter chill around her.

She opened her eyes, looked around, and saw three illuminated figures standing at the side of her bed. They had no features at all, and looked "like human silhouettes made up of white vapor." Being a devout Catholic, Maureen lifted a cross pendant around her neck towards the figures, but they remained standing by her bed. The taller figure moved toward her. She could feel the air getting colder around her neck, and then she felt a pressure around her neck: the figure was apparently trying to choke her.

Maureen tried to bring her right hand up to make the sign of the cross, but her hand felt like it weighed a ton. At the same time she was having difficulty breathing. She barely managed to make the sign of the cross and began praying. Soon the figures vanished and the room became warm again.

On a later date, she woke up with a running nose and when she reached over to the tissue box, when suddenly a large hairy hand came up from behind the tissue box and grabbed her wrist. She attempted to scream but was unable to as a cold chill enveloped her body. She opened her mouth in an attempt to bite the hairy hand and it suddenly disappeared.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that at Hickam Airfield, Oahu, Hawaii, on Summer 1959, on a warm summer night, six-year old Maureen Izon was sleeping soundly on the bottom bunk when she suddenly felt a bitter chill around her. She opened her eyes and looked around. Standing at the side of her bed were three illuminated figures. They had no features at all. They looked like human silhouettes made up of white vapor. Being a devout Catholic, Maureen lifted a cross pendant around her neck towards the figures, but they remained standing by her bed. The taller figure moved toward her. She could feel the air getting colder around her neck and then she felt pressure around her neck. The figure was apparently trying to choke her. Maureen tried to bring his right hand up to make the sign of the cross. But her hand felt like it weighed a ton. At the same time she was having difficulty breathing. She barely managed to make the sign of the cross and began praying. Soon the figures vanished and the room became warm again. On a later date, the same witness woke up with a runny nose and when she reached over to the tissue box when suddenly a large hairy hand came up from behind the tissue box and grabbed her wrist. She attempted to scream but was unable to as a cold chill enveloped her body. She opened her mouth in an attempt to bite the hairy hand and it suddenly disappeared.
