But now, I'm intrigued! Ah, I feel another story brewing.
The incident occurred on July 18, 1953 at 2:30 in the morning, downtown Houston area. Mrs. Hilda Walker and two other females were talking on her front porch, when they spotted an odd figure flying toward them. The creature landed in Mrs. Walker's pecan tree. The creature was described as, "... a man with wings like a bat". The figure was about six and a half feet tall and remained perched in the tree for about thirty seconds. A glowing light seemed to radiate about it. The glow faded, reported the witnesses, and then, the batman vanished into thin air. (Author's Note: What were these women doing out at 2:30 a.m.? Just asking.)
In the news segment, which you can also watch the video from the link below, KTRK had a graphic designer sketch what he believes the creature may look like. I do agree with one thing he had to say. This supernatural legend gives the city of Houston "flavor". It most definitely keeps it interesting!
