There is something about 3 in the morning and ghostly apparitions. In folklore, it is considered the witching hour or devil’s hour. It is usually associated with supernatural events to which witches, demons and ghouls appear the most. Definitions vary and include the hour immediately after midnight and the time between 3:00 am and 4:00 am. 

But as motorcycle rider Karl Dagus said, the incident occurred around 3 a.m. – the witching hour.

His helmet had a camera that recorded his travel.

Dagus said during his interview at the GMA Regional TV One Mindanao that he, along with his passenger or co-rider, were traversing the national highway at the Gusa Village in Cagayan de Oro City.
