Miner Details Flying Disk Spin Into Sand

MOJAVE. Cal. Aug. 19 (INS) -- Buck Fitzgerald, a veteran prospector, reported Friday that he saw a flying disk in the Mojave desert about 15 miles south of Death Valley.

Fitzgerald said that he and a friend, Mase Garney, saw the flying saucer "spin into the desert after coming out of nowhere."

The 73-year-old prospector related:

"This flying disk, which was about 24 ft. in diameter, whizzed past us going about 300 mph.

"It crash-landed and two little men jumped out and started running when they saw us.

"The men looked human but they were very small - like dwarfs.

"We chased them over a sand dune but lost them. I don't know where they went."
