The Green Man
In the Pennsylvania area, there’s a legend called the “Green Man” – a ghost-like creature that had no face, glowed green and walked around at night. As the story goes, he used to live in an abandoned house, and due to an electrical accident, he was permanently glowing green. You could also drive into an abandoned tunnel that was supposedly his hangout, and call out for him. This spectre was assumed to be a local legend, until it was proven true.
Raymond Robinson was a 9-year old boy when he was injured by an electrical line – taking on 22,00 volts, something which had killed a boy a year earlier. Though he was suspected to die, Raymond lived, but was severely disfigured, losing his eyes, nose and right arm. You can see images of him HERE (as it’s a little too graphic for us here). He subsequently never went out in the day, only taking late night walks with his walking stick, illuminated by the streetlights, his pale skin had a ‘greenish’ hue. Sometimes, the people that he met were friendly, other times, not so much, which is were the legends began. Robinson died in 1985, but his legend still remains.
