Dijon Oct. 18

Ten days ago, Mr. André Narcy, 47, a roadworker in Mertrud arrived at work breathless: "I saw a flying saucer", he says, giving much details: an orange colored object stopped in a field, a small being dressed in a coat of hair. A nice vertical start of the mysterious craft. Besides, Mr. Narcy was able to show the place. With two of his comrades, MM. Riel and Henry, he returned there. All three declared that in fact the dew had dried on a certain surface, that the grass had taken "a slightly milky hue," that there were traces of "round feet," etc...

In short, questioned again by the gendarmerie, Mr. Narcy has just admitted that he had made up this story from scratch to excuse his late arrival at work.
