Vico, Italy. A man who was fishing in the Serchio River saw a disk hovering for 10 min. From it hung a hose that plunged into the water. The object was 20 m in diameter, with five propellers in the rear and a dome with something like blades on top.
An orange glow could be seen through slits along the deck.
A man wearing a diving helmet looked at the witness through a window, and he received a kind of electric shock as a “green ray” hit him.
He looked up with difficulty, in time to see the object fly away toward the east. Six days later, a stranger with a foreign accent contacted the witness and intimidated him.
