Large BAT-WINGED CRYPTID Encountered Previous to UFO Crash Report Into Lake Michigan


In the early 1960s, in the Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn, a witness described seeing a leathery winged creature with a human face. A UFO was reported to have crashed into Lake Michigan soon after.

I received the following account:

"I didn't see the creature. My mother did around 1960 in the Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn, IL. My aunt was present, but said she didn't see it. My dad and uncle were in the house with us kids and also saw nothing. She described it as having leathery wings like a bat but also had arms and a human face. She had watched it from a distance as it approached. She originally thought it was a HUGE bird. Standing on the railings of our porch to get a better look, and said it was almost close enough to touch. She said it flapped its wings slowly, gliding as much as flying.

Within a few moments, there was a radio report about a UFO crashing into Lake Michigan, and both families jumped into our cars and went to the lake to see. It took a half-hour or so to get to the lake, and police were on the scene by then shooing people away. I was in the first grade at the time. My parents were both practical people not given to jumping at shadows or imagining things." LU
