The power of telepathy, I mean, emergency personnel

Woman Says She Used Telepathy After Plunge Off Forest Highway

A woman who barely survived a 350-foot plunge down an icy mountainside said she used telepathy to let her husband know she needed help.

Tracy Granger, 56, had to spend a freezing night on the side of a mountain in the Angeles National Forest before she was found.

But as she sat, huddled and badly hurt, she reached out to her husband with her mind, calling for help.

“I sat down and I said out loud, ‘Lee, I’m overdue,'” she told KTLA. “‘Something has happened. Figure it out.'”

Her white 1999 Ford Ranger was spotted early March 26 some 350 feet down the side of a steep, snow-covered embankment on Angeles Forest Hwy at mile marker 10.47.

“As deputies were walking along the ridgeline here, they actually saw a tool box laying down,” said Sgt. Andrew Nagel of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.


From the information given in the story, it appears pretty easy to figure out that something went wrong. The clues were all there: bad road conditions and the fact that she didn’t show up on time. An accident wasn’t difficult to imagine. I’m glad Ms. Granger gave credit to the responders because all first responders deserve much praise for their effort. But, it’s pretty silly that the news channel chose to stress the telepathy angle here when that didn’t appear to have a darn thing to do with the situation. When they DO stress the paranormal angles, they make those ideas a bit more acceptable in pop culture.

    About 3:00 into the video: “9 hours later, after her husband reported her missing, searchers found Tracy’s tool box on the road, tire marks where she went off…”

    Well, there ya go.

    Sort of belittling the wording that she uses to frame her “telepathic” message, yes? To her poor husband, Lee you’re one solid guy…she seems to feel that you should know what she’s thinking but at the same time “figure it out”. This may sound harsh but a lesser man would have ignored the call.

    Those paranormal overtones were really forced, huh? Way to go, local news media.

    Perhaps she prayed too, but no matter what she was found and is still alive to tell the tale. Sorry if it offends, but the human brain is still a mystery, and sceptics cab be such KILLJOYS!

    Why would it offend? We are certainly entitled to our own beliefs. Perhaps she did pray and imagine she was sending messages telepathically, if that helped keep her going, that’s excellent.

    I don’t see how it’s being a killjoy to note that the MEDIA focused on a pointless bit about telepathy when that really had little to do with the story. I feel the media is lazy about these things going after a gimmick instead of the facts of the story.
