APRIL 1978, TORRENTE, VALENCIA, SPAIN, FRANCISCO RAMON JIMENEZ:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Francisco Ramon Jimenez, 14-year-old, from Torrente, province of Valencia, Spain, claimed he was an extraterrestrial because from April 1978 on, he used to meet the inhabitants of Ganymedes, who taught to him to cure Earthmen after having taken him on their world several nights.

At a certain time at school, he realized that he could see the skeletons inside his comrades. "Since then I heal with the hands and without drugs", he claimed. It is claimed people who had benefited from his healing power said Francisco understood the courses without studying, that he had great knowledge in medicine and psychology, and specific powers to treat blind men, cancer patients, paralytics and any type of patients.

Another version says he had dreams about aliens while hospitalized in Alencia Clinical Hospital at age eleven that changed his life. He claimed to be an extraterrestrial and that he needed the successful leg operation because "they crippled me coming out, with the foreceps." He said: "When I sleep, my body remains on earth and I go to the planet Ganymede. ...They have explained to me how to cure people. ...given me ... energy. ..."

He claimed to cure all diseases by passing energy to the sick. He saw many patients and took donations. He claimed his energy is something we all have but do not use, that comes from another galaxy. Each night he "charges the batteries" by visiting Ganymede. Many cures, usually in the form of gradual improvements, are claimed. Yet he said "I cannot even cure myself of a simple cold. All the energy I have I must use for others."

Narratives:

[Ref. bh1:] ROBERT E. BARTHOLOMEW AND GEORGE S. HOWARD:

The authors indicate that in 1978, in Torrente, province of Valencia, Spain, Francisco Ramon Jimenez, 14-year-old, tells that a dream about aliens while hospitalized in Alencia Clinical Hospital at age eleven changed his life. He claimed to be an extraterrestrial and that he needed the successful leg operation because "they crippled me coming out, with the foreceps." While he was hospitalized, aliens appeared in a dream and have appeared every night since. "When I sleep, my body remains on earth and I go to the planet Ganymede. ...They have explained to me how to cure people. ...given me ... energy. ..."

He claimed to cure all diseases by passing energy to the sick. He saw many patients and took donations. He claimed his energy is something we all have but do not use, that comes from another galaxy. Each night he "charges the batteries" by visiting Ganymede. Many cures, usually in the form of gradual improvements, are claimed. Yet he said "I cannot even cure myself of a simple cold. All the energy I have I must use for others."

The authors indicate that the source is CAMBIO 16, August 10, 1981.

[Ref. lr1:] LUIS RAMIREZ REYES:

In April 2007, Luis Ramirez Reyes indicated on his UFO web page that at the time of the "month of the Child", he extract interesting cases from his files, and one is that a Spanish children managed to claim he was extraterrestrial because he used to meet the inhabitants of Ganimedes, who taught to him to cure Earthmen after having taken him on their world several nights.

He indicates that "the fact" took place at the beginning of the Eighties in Torrente, province of Valence. Named Francisco Ramon Jimenez and 14-year-old, the boy from space considered himself chosen by the extraterrestrials to get special healing powers.

At a certain time at school, he realized that he could see the inside of his comrades, i.e. their skeletons. "Since then I heal with the hands and without drugs", he added. Many people who had benefited from his healing power came to claim that Francisco understood the courses without studying, that he had great knowledge in medicine and psychology, and specific powers to treat blind men, cancer patients, paralytics and any type of patients.

Points to consider:

It seems the report is basically a "story", from the media probably, with no sign of investigation although the allegations of "healing powers" are certainly something that could have been checked out seriously.
