On September 21, 1933, Mabel Smith Douglass went canoeing on Lake Placid, and never returned. 30 years later divers found her body. Due to the cold water, Douglass was incredibly well-preserved, resting on a rock shelf near Pulpit rock. That area of the lake is so deep, some consider it to be bottomless. There have been numerous accounts where boaters report seeing a form that appears to be Douglass materialized over the lake near Pulpit Rock at night.
