Two out of three of the participants met other beings. Both Mrs O. and Mrs C. met respectively their dead mother and father, who told them 'do not cross the river' and to go back. Moreover, Mrs O. saw a group of child monks who were with her mother on the other side of the river. She said: 'I saw a large group of children monks running towards me. They were dressed in a white shirt and black skirts. They were aged between 10 and 12, and were all bold.' She immediately associated the group with the terrible noise she was hearing. She said: 'They were terribly noisy and I couldn't understand what they were saying to me.' The third participant, the young musician, was alone: 'serene, but lonely'.
