Alien Encounters, Strange

Man dies of heart attack after being abducted by aliens

Charles Hickson, who has claimed for over 40 years that he was abducted, died.

alien-abduction1One of the more famous abductees in history died last Friday of a heart attack at the age of 80. Hickson gained notoriety in the UFO fanatic circles with his claim that he and a buddy were abducted by aliens while they were fishing.  In 1983, after many TV interviews he wrote a book about the incident called “UFO Contact at Pascagoula” with William Mendez. What makes his claim stand out was his staunch denial that it was a hoax, he believed it right to the grave and the police who he first reported it to in 1973 believe him too.

Alien-Sign“They weren’t lying,” the chief investigator for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department told reporters at the time. “Whatever it was, it was real to them.”

Hickson was one of the first to describe the aliens performing test on him during the abduction. Even claiming to be probed (ouch).

Hickson, then 42, was fishing with 19-year-old Calvin Parker Jr. on a pier near Pascagoula, Mississippi in October 1973 when they said a cigar-shaped UFO with flashing blue lights suddenly appeared above them. A door opened up, the two men later told authorities, and they were pulled into the craft by aliens, who paralyzed them, examined them on a table and then let them go.

Poor Mr. Hickson, all he wanted to do was go fishing with a buddy and instead he gets probed by aliens? We just hope the Aliens were decent enough to buy him a drink! It’s just common courtesy.


  1. Where can i get that abduction sign? I want it for my car.

  2. Rip in peace man. Good to see someone come forth despite all that ridicule. Glad he at least made some money of being shamed.
