In his book Apparitions the author G.N.M. Tyrell discusses a
typical delayed crisis apparition. It involves a lady called Mrs.
Paquet whose brother worked on a tugboat in Chicago's harbour. She
awoke one morning in an unshakable depressive mood. Having gone into
the pantry for some tea she turned around to see her brother Edmund
standing a few feet away.
stood with back toward me, or partially so, and was in the act of falling
forward - away from me - seemingly impelled by two loops or a loop of rope
drawing against his legs. the vision lasted but a moment,
disappearing over a low railing or bulwark, but was very distinct. I
dropped the tea, clasped my hands to my face, and exclaimed.
"my god! Ed is drowned."'
Soon after this Mrs. Paquet received the news that her brother had fallen
overboard nad drowned, exactly as she had seen it happen, but about six
hours before her vision. See also crisis
