Hickson maintained until his death that he had been abducted and probed by extraterrestrials in 1973.

He had been fishing on a pier with Calvin Parker Jr. near Pascagoula, Mississippi when the men encountered a cigar-shaped UFO with blue lights that appeared above them. The abduction experience that happened next has been the topic of much controversy and ridicule, with the men being reportedly taken aboard the craft and examined before being let go.

"Charles Hickson, the Mississippi man who claimed he was abducted and probed by aliens while he was fishing with a friend in 1973 and never backed off the story despite the ridicule he endured, has died."

Richard Hall made a list of some 1973 Humanoid reports, some of which were robots or robot-like, and some just downright bizarre: TABLE 4. UFO OCCUPANT SIGHTINGS, 1973 September 27, 1973 Bedarrides, France 5:30 P.M. Two 1.2-meter humanoids, slender limbs, black caps, coveralls, with oval craft; UFO took off with whistling sound, sped away.

Here's another website about the wave of 1973-74, which featured many UFO landings and physical trace cases, many UFOs tracked on radar and chased around by jets, at least five instances when people shot at UFOs or "occupants", reports that the military had started a couple of new UFO projects called Old New Moon and Blue Paper, and government agents all over place, sometimes reported to be showing witnesses books full of pictures or various types of UFOs and aliens and asking which ones they had seen. http://www.burlingtonnews.net/ufoflap-70s.html "The U.S. Air Force, the Department of Defens...

And this is the NICAP report on the 1973 UFO wave, which featured sightings from all over the world. I could not find any reports of "friendly" ETs here, but plenty that engaged in activities that could be considered hostile. Interestingly, the US military was also of DEFCON III alert in October and November 1973 due to the Arab-Israeli War at that time. http://www.nicap.org/waves/1973fullrep.htm January - February 1973; Cherokee County, S.C. Police in Cherokee County received so many UFO sighting reports that they stopped sending cars out to investigate. The sightings according to police have... [More]

What stands out in my mind about this incident is how both Hickson and Parker knew full well how their strange abduction story would sound to people and did not want any publicity about what happened because of fear of ridicule. They were terrified and felt compelled to report what happened to the authorities whom they thought they could trust to keep the matter confidential. They were not at all pleased when the sheriff leaked the story to the press. True perpetrators of hoaxes want all the publicity they can get. I truly believe something extremely unusual happened to those men that night.

We will never know whether or not this was fake. As much as I would prefer nothing else but to have the ability to fully invest belief into this, the possibility still exists that it was faked.

He and Parker stated that they were abducted by robots who brought them aboard a spacecraft. They reported this incident to the police who left them alone in a room and tape recorded them secretly, thinking they'd give themselves away in a hoaxed story. They did not, and in fact were very badly shaken and terrified by what had happened to them. Other witnesses also say this UFO at the time and it was tracked on radar as well. Even more, it deliberately interfered with the radar system. The 1973 UFO wave was one of the largest in US history, and was called the Year of the Humanoids because of t... [More]

This has the earmarks of a true abduction. hoaxers generally are not shaken or /and terrified when reporting an abduction. the fact that the man died is not necessarily connected with the abduction, although it definitely a possibility, although extreme. most true abductees continue to be abducted throughout their lives and usually can function in society even living in fear of when it will occur again. Welcome to the Forum Vennard ! THis is a great place to present all your Ideas and stories ! We should never rule out any abduction`s or tails !
