Almost Run Over After Spaceship Lands
BRACEBRIDGE, Ont. (CP) - Robert Suffern of Three Mile Lake
says a spaceship landed about 13 miles northwest of here
Tuesday night and he almost ran over one of its occupants
with his car.
Mr. Suffern said Wednesday the ship was about 12 to 14 feet
across, nine feet high and circular in shape.
Mr. Suffern said he found the ship while driving around
to investigate "a glow in the sky" seen by his
sister, who lives nearby and telephoned him to say she thought
his barn might be on fire.
He said that a few seconds after he saw it, the ship lifted
straight up from the road in front of his car.
Mr. Suffern said that, on returning home, he had to slam
on his brakes to avoid hitting "some sort of creature."
The creature, he said, was the height of the car fender
and dressed in silver. It had two legs, two arms, a globe-shaped
helmet and walked "sort of like a midget."
The creature turned, took three or four steps, vaulted over
a fence and disappeared.
Mr. Suffern said he raced back to his house and arrived
in time to see the spaceship hover near his home before
crossing the lake.
Mr. Suffern said he was badly shaken by the incident.
all right to think what you would do if you came face to
face with a situation like this," he said, "but
when it actually happens, you are scared because you are
dealing with the unknown."
mean what do you do if they come to the door .... offer
them a beer?"
Bracebridge is about 30 miles north of Orillia.
