Gordon Higginson often recounted that he had been hurt during physical séances on a couple of occasions. This article in Psychic News by Maurice Barbanell documents one such occasion. During a physical séance, a loud click in the room caused the ectoplasm coming from Gordon’s body to suddenly return. This caused a burn to the solar plexus area. Gordon also discusses this incident in his biography ‘On the Side of Angels’ and the relevant section is also reproduced below. Here is the full article from Psychic News:
Gordon Gets Burnt
Was it the surreptitious use of a tape-recorder or some other electronic apparatus that caused Gordon Higginson to have a severe burn during his last physical seance?
This happened at Stansted Hall, Essex, on March 12th when about 60 sitters saw a display of ectoplasm emerge from him.
