On Nov. 5, 1975, an Arizona man was allegedly abducted by aliens.

It's been 40 years since that event that has captivated millions for decades. This is the story of Travis Walton. Walton was working with a logging crew that was on its way home.

While driving through the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, the crew spotted a strange light and some kind of craft hovering overhead. Walton said he approached the craft, a beam of light struck him and he fell unconscious.

Walton claims he woke up on a table inside some kind of alien craft surrounded by aliens. He said he tried to escape and encountered human-like figures. Following that, all he remembers is waking up near the town of Heber.

Travis was missing for a total of five days. The video contained in this story is Walton's account of those events.
