A US Marine in Afghanistan
This is the real life story of a mysterious demonic giant bat that resembled an eeriely looking female humanoid . This is not a movie or a prank. This was aired by Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.
On January 25, 2002, United States Marine Forces in Afghanistan experienced sonar interference coming from a cave near Tora Bora, which screwed up their sonar cave-mapping system.
Believing it to be a jamming device built by the Taliban or Al-Queda, three U.S marines, corporals Sawyer and Wade, and sergeant Carlos Ramos, investigated the cave, using helmet cameras to record their mission, which was to find the source of the interference and destroy it.
As they ventureed deeper into the cave, they discovered large amounts of bats and guano all over the cave.
Corporal Wade walked into a booby trap and fell into a lower section of the cave, breaking his back.
As he lies there, he spotted something flying past. The others found him and he seemed delirious, and muttered that what he saw looked "like a lady" (possibly a reference to how most batlike cryptids are known to have eerily feminine features).
One of the remaining Marines shouted excitedly that a woman might be down there and can help them, but the other dismissed it as a hallucination.
The remaining Marines quickly reached his position and decided to investigate the signal first which was close to their position.
As they reached the source of the signal, the signal disappeared and reappeared at Wade's position.
Wade was then heard firing off his M4 carbine and screaming in pain. The two Marines rushed to his position only to find him dead.
The two Marines left Wade's body to find the source of the signal interference. They came across "a whole nest of them", as described by one of the Marines and are attacked by an entire swarm of the creatures.
It destroyed their flashlights as they fired their weapons at the creatures. A rescue party was sent in after the booby trap caused the team to lose radio contact with the base camp.
However the rescue party only found Ramos limping away from the cave and with a rare case of rabies. He was sent home and reunited with his wife and kids.
It was theorized that the Marines' gunfire somehow killed or wounded the creatures as they left the sergeant to leave the cave alive.
The bodies of Wade and Sawyer were never recovered.
In the footage, there were louder than average bat screams when the Marines were attacked. Wade's helmet camera also showed him from behind, held down by a giant brownish winged creature. The cryptid appeared attacking the Marines again; this time, it seemed to be hanging from the ceiling.
Fatalities caused: Two. Wade was attacked, killed, and even partially decapitated by an unknown flying creature. Sawyer's death was unknown. It's possible that the creatures themselves were killed as well...!!!
