OCTOBER 10, 1977, QUEBRADILLAS, ARECIBO, PUERTO RICO, MR. OLMOS:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Apparently originating from ufologists Sebastian Robiou Lamarche, Orlando Rimax and Bob Pratt, a case occurred in Quebradillas, Puerto Rico, on October 10, 1977, at 07:00 a.m., when Mr. Olmos, on his way to work in his van, felt a wave of heat fill the cabin and stopped the vehicle to check for fire.

As he got out, he heard a kind of "shrieking noise," like "monkeys chattering" together, and at the same time, a very intense light appeared in front of him.

Turning to flee, he ran right into the back of the van, where he found himself pinned to it, arms flung out against the sides and unable to move anything but the eyes.

The light source came form a whirling cloud of vapor about 30 feet from him and 10 feet above the ground.

Out of this whirling mass of little particles, two small "grotesque" figures emerged, hovering above the ground. They approached the witness, talking incomprehensibly one with the other.

They were less than 4 feet tall, wore tight one-piece suits over "very delicate" bodies. One was green, the other white. The suits were belted with a blinking light where the buckle would be. They both wore a kind of pendant hanging loosely about their necks. Their long oval faces, of a reddish hue, were decorated with a small oval "stone" on the forehead; the eyes were dark and slanted, like Orientals, and their noses were long and slight with two nostrils. Their mouths were slits. They somehow resembled frogs.

One held a box in a wrinkled hand that had fingers of the same length. Using this box, one of the beings examined the witness. They never touched him.

Both beings were constantly surrounded by a kind of mist, and when they spoke, a kind of frost came from their mouths. The air around the witness felt hot and heavy and he felt as if he was losing consciousness.

The examination lasted only briefly, the witness thinks he was paralyzed for no more than two minutes. Then the whirling clouds began to increase, the figures receded towards the light source and disappeared in the swirling particles, as they had first appeared.

The witness felt stiff and sore afterwards, these symptoms lasted two days.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Quebradillas, Puerto Rico, on October 10, 1977, at 07:00 a.m., Mr. Olmos, on his way to work in his van, felt a wave of heat fill the cab and stopped the vehicle to check for fire.

As he got out, he heard a kind of "shrieking noise," like "monkeys chattering" together; at the same time, a very intense light appeared before him. Turning to flee, he ran right into the back of the van, where he found himself pinned to it, arms flung out against the sides and unable to move anything but his eyes.

The light source came form a whirling cloud of vapor about 30 feet from him and 10 feet above the ground. Out of this whirling mass of little particles emerged two small grotesque figures, suspended above the ground; they approached the witness, talking incomprehensibly, one with the other.

They were less than 4-foot tall and wore tight one-piece suits over very delicate bodies. One was green the other white. The suits were belted with a blinking light where the buckle would be. They both wore a kind of pendant hanging loosely about their necks. Their long oval faces, of a reddish hue, were decorated with a small oval stone on the forehead; eyes were dark and slanted, like Orientals, and their noses were long and slight with two nostrils. Their mouths were slits. They somehow resembled frogs.

One held a box in wrinkled hand that had fingers of the same length. Using this box, one of the beings examined the witness. They never touched him.

Both beings were constantly surrounded by a kind of mist, and when they spoke, a kind of frost came from their mouths. The air around the witness felt hot and heavy and he felt as if he was losing consciousness.

The examination lasted only briefly and the witness believed he was paralyzed for no more than two minutes. Then the whirling clouds began to increase, the figures receded towards the light source and disappeared in the swirling particles, as they had first appeared.

The witness felt stiff and sore following the ordeal, symptoms that lasted for two days.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Sebastian Robiou Lamarche, Orlando Rimax and Bob Pratt, and Humcat 1977-64.

Points to consider:

It would have been interesting to know if the witness of this experience, Mr. Olmos, is the same as the witness of the July 12, 1977 sighting, also in Quebradillas.

No less than four ufologists are indicated as sources for this case, including local ufologists and a ufologist used to visit the witnesses on location. This tends to suggest that the witness was interviewed, that maybe a full-fledged investigation was done, unfortunately not referred and nonavailable.
