several ships passing near Malaysia received some strange SOS messages. Two American ships received the signals from a Dutch vessel called SS Ourang Medan. The message said, "All the officers, including the captain, are dead... I’m dying." When they went to the rescue, they found every member of the crew lying dead, as if they were frozen, with expressions of sheer terror on their faces and outstretched arms defending themselves from whatever they saw. They found no injuries on the bodies.
