Real Names: John and Patricia Eggleston
Case: Unusal Phenomenon
Location: Seattle, Washington
Date: January 28, 1989
Details: On January 28, 1989, John and Patti Eggleston had finished skiing with their two sons and left the ski resort to drive seventy miles to their Seattle home. Then, the car slid off the side of a bridge and fell eighty feet into a river below. The car quickly filled with ice-cold water. Patti, who normally would have panicked, had a feeling of love and guidance. She believes that this feeling helped give her the strength to rescue her sons. Sadly, John died on impact; however, Patti believes that his spirit helped her save the boys.
After leaving the hospital, Patti tried to cope with her loss. One night, she felt that John was with her in the bedroom. However, she did not see him at that time. A Seattle physician named Melvin Morse studied Patti's case and several other widows being visited by their husbands; he believes that she is genuine.
One night, John appeared in bodily form; he and Patti began communicating with each other, even though his lips were not moving. Patti claims that John's visits continued for a year until she was able to get her life back together. Some believe that Patti's visions were nothing but hallucination, but for her, she is certain that she saw the spirit of her husband.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the May 4, 1994 episode, about after death visits, along with Paige Roark.
