- Taxco - For 20 minutes, four unidentified flying objects
(UFOs) appeared over the city, traveling in a northeast to south
direction as the sun shed its last few rays over the city, at 19:00 hours
last monday, according to several residents.
- At 19:10 hours, [a UFO] appeared for over two minutes
in a "somewhat" descending form, and as it vanished into the
distance, three more objects appeared from the opposite direction, as though
they were about to collide, said Fernando Zaga, a resident of Los Jales.
"The ones who recorded the UFO were Red Cross personnel. I saw them
loading their camera," he said, adding, "several of us saw the
vehicles, even with a certain amount of fear."
- Miguel Angel Saenz Ocampo, a rescue worker of the international
organization, when interviewed this morning by DIARIO 21, noted that after
having witnessed the event, "only two more objects appeared from the
same direction and one more, traveling from one side to another."
- He added that the event "the likes of which he'd
never seen before" had an approximate duration of 20 minutes.
- Antonio Gomez Castrejon, also a member of the Red Cross,
showed the reporter the images taken with his camcorder after the UFOs
- He rejected the possibility that they could have been
airplanes, as no wings were visible, adding that they had a semi-oval shape,
"somewhat rounded", made no noise, and [flew] at an estimated
speed of 600-800 kmh.
- "Airplanes fly along a defined route from
which they do not stray, unless they have been hijacked or experience mechanical
failures," he stated. "Nor do they cross paths with one another,
much less pretending to collide." The images were taken from "the
best angle" of the Red Cross facility, accompanied by two rescue workers.
- Sergio Miguel Sandoval, a resident of La Florida, claimed
having seen those objects that "seemed to travel from Cuernavaca to
Iguala, or from the community of El Azul to Taxco el Viejo."
- Gomez Castrejon said that his video will be shown in
its entirety in the "Mitos, Leyendas y Enigmas" show that is
broadcast on Saturdays on Landavision's news program, produced by Joaquin
Cadena, by cable television.
