We received the following report in September 2010 the actual incident happened in early August of the same year:
"My cousin, and her husband invited my husband, and myself to the lake for the day and overnight as we often try to do once each summer. They own one of several cottages in an old park on Lake Erie in Wainfleet. Their cottage is approximatly 100 meters from the lake.
We arrived Sunday early afternoon and the weather was not great. It was raining off and on and was quite windy. By evening it was nice and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the evening. I must add that this is an old park that most cottage owners are older and are rarely there. If they do come on a sunny Sunday afternoon, ther're gone by evening so this day there wasn't anyone there except us four.
My husband and I were staying in my uncle's cottage across the road. At the end of the evening we decided to walk to the lake.
There is a breakwall with a boardwalk at the top. You have to climb down stairs to be at the water which has a small beach. We sat on a stationary concrete bench on the boardwalk. We sat talking and enjoying the view when suddenly just beyond the breakwall there appeared a young man totaly dark, running right in front of us then turning and running the other way. He was waving his arms at his head, as best to describe it, like a swarm of bees were flying around his head, I got the sense it was a younger man by his movement. We could not see his face as it seemed to be covered with a hoodie or something. He dashed back and forth in front of us four times very quickly and my husband jumped off the bench and said to me, let's get out of here! I said wait a minute let's see where he goes. He did not seem to pay attention to us at all. On the fourth time he passed us he just disappeared and my husband looked at me and asked where did he go? I said I think we just saw a ghost, because nothing else made sense.
The best way to describe him is that he seemed panicky and disoriented.This all happened very quickly, we think a matter of ten seconds. Three weeks later we went back to stay overnight because we wanted to see if it would appear again, it did not but what we did discover is from where we were sitting on the bench, you could not see the shore line so what we saw had to be on the lake or hovering above."
