Mrs. Nye’s cousin Errol, then 15 years old was sent out to haul in the skiff up on fishing boat which was tied to a float at night. Errol left the flashlight pointing inshore. He glanced up and saw human-like figure standing in the water up to his waist, between the float and the shore watching him. He described it as “not exactly a person” but arms and head like a man. The creature was grayish white all over and had big round beedy eyes. The boy screamed and ran. About thirty men rushed out, shone lights and saw the creature dive under the water and swim away under water like a frog. Arms forward over head and legs doing a “frog kick.’
Reported by Mrs. Nye of Renton Washington to Nick Carter in 1975 although the incident occurred in the summer of 1960.
