In a bizarre and unnerving twist, Hickson recounted that after being taken aboard the UFO, he and Parker were subjected to a physical examination by a strange entity that resembled a "big eye." In 2002, Hickson explained:

I didn't see [the robots] for a while. Then an eyeball, about the size of a football, came out of the wall. It moved right in front of my face. I saw dials and gadgets moving around. It went behind me, then came back over me. Then it disappeared back into the wall.

Just as suddenly as they had been taken, the two men were unceremoniously dropped back in the same spot in the Mississippi delta where they had been fishing earlier. According to Hickson, Parker was standing upright with his arms raised to the sky, screaming in terror. The pair wasted no time in getting out of there, desperately seeking help, and trying to make sense of what had just happened to them.

Even though secretly leaving a tape recorder running while no one but the alleged abductees were in the room is not entirely on the up and up, this decision helped solidify Hicks and Parker's story. On the recording the two men are heard trying to calm one another down after the troubling ordeal with an alien spacecraft. Hickson can be heard telling Parker:

It scared me to death too, son. You can't get over it in a lifetime. Jesus Christ have mercy.

Capt. Glenn Ryder later told NBC:

I don't know what happened to them. I wasn't there with them, but I know you don't fake fear, and they were fearful. They were fearful.
