Incident: On Friday the 10th of March, me and a few friends from college went camping in the Yorkshire Dales for the weekend, taking with us no shortage of beer (after all, what's a college weekend away without a drink or two).
After pitching our tents and getting a small fire going, we sat down and began to drink the night away. At about 10:30 p.m. most of the lads and ladies had paired up or were getting some shut eye, leaving me out of the loop (as usual). I decided to go for a walk to see if the country air might clear my head. Roughly about 40 minutes later, I sat down on a small rock at the edge of a a small cliff overlooking a woodland area.
It was then that I noticed female walking quite sluggishly down the footpath toward me. At first it appeared to be Sarah, one of my friends from the campsite (she is a bit of a lightweight when it come to beer). However, as the woman got closer I could see she was kitted out in hiking gear and appeared to be in her 30s. Also, she was walking with a noticeable limp. I called out to see if she needed any help. It was at this point that she lunged at me, her arm reaching for my throat. I could see that she was missing her left eye and half of her right cheek: the sight would have made me throw up if I wasn't so in shock. I began to lose my footing and fell back on to the rock I was sitting on not a moment ago. Just as the woman was about to grab me, I kicked out with both my legs, using the rock for support. The woman stumbled back and fell over the end of the cliff.
I walked back to the camp site to find everyone asleep. The next morning I told them what had happened, but they seemed to think I just dreamed the whole thing.
I haven't had a good night sleep since that night, but I hope that telling someone else my story will put my mind at rest.
Comments From Dr. Pecos: So after this whole thing happened you didn't try to wake anyone up back at camp? Also, why didn't you go back to the scene of the incident the next morning and look for the body?
