Mothman emerging from the woods?
The Mothman legend is commonly said to center around a horrific event that took place in Point Pleasant, West Virginia on December 15, 1967. On that cold December evening, at around 5.00 p.m., the U.S. Highway 35 Bridge known as the Silver Bridge collapsed. The Silver Bridge connected Point Pleasant, West Virginia and Kanauga, Ohio. Thirty-seven vehicles were on the Silver Bridge when it collapsed, sending 31 of those cars into the cold river water. Forty-six people died and a further nine were seriously injured.
