Angèlique Cottin -The Electric Girl

Angélique Cottin was a Normandy peasant girl of 'small stature' who had a bizarre affect on objects and people. Indeed, the phenomena which she 'produced' are very similar to those more normally associated with poltergeists. Angélique became known as 'The Electric Girl', and her case, though certainly not unique, was one of the first of its kind to be scientifically investigated.

The phenomena began in the town of La Perrière, France, on January 15, 1846, when Angélique was 14. It was eight o'clock in the evening, and Angélique, together with some other girls, was weaving silk gloves on an oak frame, when suddenly the frame began to shake as if it were alive. The girls couldn't keep it still no matter what they tried. They became distressed and called the neighbours, who didn't believe them and told them to carry on with their work. So they returned slowly, one by one, to the weaving frame, which remained still until Angélique came near, then it again began dancing around again. All the girls were afraid, but Angélique also felt a strange attraction towards the frame.

maybe that russian mutant thing is not so far off...
