Costa Rica: A UFO Over Tres Rios
Reporter: Jeison Granados
"I was working on a top floor when I saw something that looked like a star. I was very surprised because only a powerful light could be seen. That's when I started recording with the cellphone because the event was very intriguing. When I saw the video, I was startled at what I'd recorded, since it was a flying saucer, no more, no less."
This is how Angel Brenes describes how he recorded the unidentified flying object (UFO) that appeared over Tres Rios on Sunday, June 24, 2007
Angel is a security guard at the local ICE facility, particularly at the "Quebrada del Fierro" plant, where there are many antennas present and other co-workers had reported seeing strange things.
"Since it's an open field, I think the UFOs come over to siphon off electricity," he said.
The worker said that he didn't believe in such things. "I can tell you that I wasn't scared because I didn't believe in such things, but after seeing this, I can tell all non-believers that we are a country chosen by extraterrestrials," said the guard, who is still astonished by his experience.
Sightings in this country are very common, especially in the San Carlos region, due to the presence of the Arenal Volcano.
