Residents of a neighborhood in El Dorado, a district of the city of Santa Cruz in Bolivia, have described to baffled TV news crews their encounter with a mysterious being -- believed to be an alien astronaut -- who fell out of a UFO spacecraft, walked around the neighborhood, and even climbed up a tree.
But when residents who heard a loud bang and a flash of light rushed out of their homes, the extraterrestrial being scrambled back on board his UFO spacecraft and disappeared.
Although some media reports claim that the incident happened in the town of El Dorado in Argentina, details of the incident by the Inexplicata Blog and YouTube clips of news reports (see below) by Notivision TV indicate that the incident occurred in the El Dorado district of the city of Santa Cruz in eastern Bolivia.Witnesses, including schoolchildren and residents of El Dorado in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, said that before the alien fell from the sky, a UFO was sighted in the sky over the city at about 10 p.m. on Friday, May 20, 2016, according to Notivision TV.
A witness reportedly captured the UFO on camera as it circled over the neighborhood.
Locals said that soon after the UFO was sighted circling in the sky over the neighborhood, an extraterrestrial being that appeared to have jumped or fallen out of the craft was seen roaming the neighborhood and "climbing through trees."
But when terrified residents and children came out, it rushed back into its spacecraft and disappeared, according to Notivision TV.Three schoolchildren told reporters that they saw the alien climbing up a tree after it fell from a UFO spacecraft. The children's bizarre story was corroborated by adult residents.
"Three students were witnesses to the sighting from El Dorado as they returned home from school," the local TV news report said.
The three students described the sighting in detail to a Notivision TV news crew and even took them around the neighborhood (see YouTube videos), pointing out the sites where the alien landed and the tree it allegedly climbed.
They also showed reporters a house that the alien apparently attempted to break into and provided news reporters with a sketch showing what the alien looked like.
Details of the incident narrated by some witnesses suggest that a UFO crashed and that an alien escaped from it and tried to climb up a tree. But when residents, who heard a loud noise and saw a flash of light, came out of their homes, the alien disappeared mysteriously.
"A very loud sound was heard. All the signals went out. There was no way to record that sound.""Local residents say they saw a UFO in the sky, which crashed on Calle #2 of the district," said a reporter summarizing eye-witness accounts. "They even described a strange being that climbed up a tree."
"A very loud sound was heard. All the signals went out. There was no way to record that sound," a witness said. "Suddenly it fell down and disappeared. I don't know what it could have been."
"It all began with a bright light in the sky, when the unimaginable occurred," said a resident. "Something came down, straight down. A light came straight down, more or less, and they say it lost itself in that tree. It tried to get into that house over there."
"Something came down; straight down. A light came straight down, more or less... it lost itself in that tree. It tried to get into that house over there."A child told reporters that he saw strange eyes staring at him.
A woman described the alien as "small and gooey" in appearance.
"It extended its arms and climbed a tree. That's when all the neighbors came out, but nothing could be found," a woman said.
"They said it had long fingers, and climbed right over there," she added.
"It extended its arms and climbed a tree. That's when all the neighbors came out..."The bizarre incident has elicited comments from members of the online UFO community.
UFO blogger Scott C. Waring pointed out that aliens rarely exit their UFOs, and that only very unusual circumstances could explain an alien exiting its UFO and allowing itself to be observed by locals.
"For aliens to risk their safety by walking around and examining the area, there must be something important about to happen in that area," Waring comments. "Otherwise they could have landed in a wooded area of a mountain hundreds of miles from the nearest human."
