Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The Cronica newspaper, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, reported on July 4, 1968, the story that they said occurred to Alejandra Martinez da Pascucci, a mother, one, two or three days before: while arriving at 11:30 p.m. at her home at the corner of Alvear street and Savedra street, in a little developed district of the town of Quilmes which always made her nervous, she felt an invisible force that pressed her and wrapped her, preventing her from shouting, and without losing consciousness, she found herself in a very hot closed space, inside a round machine with apertures that showed red and green lights, which seemed to be made for 4 or 5 people.

There were two men in metallic clothes, helmets and shoes that all released a powerful light. One measured more than two meters in height and the other was a little shorter. They looked at her and spoke to her in a language that she did not understand, then one of the men pressed on a button, and little afterwards she was back to the ground in a way similar to her capture, finding herself not on Mars like she had feared, but close to a cemetery of her city, from where she too cab to go back home.

2. 1968, July 2. Quilmes (Buenos Aires). Tuesday. 08:30 p.m.

Alejandra Martínez de Pascucci, mother of 2 sons, was going to her residence, hand had to cross a wasteland located between the Saavedra and Alvear streets. She was there when she felt that an "invisible force" grabbed her and wrapped her, preventing her from shouting. Without managing to lose consciousness, she found herself in a hot place where there were two men of some 2 m of height, with suits of metallic-luminous aspects, who spoke in a language incomprehensible for the protagonist. After having undertaken short trip, during which she only says to have seen green and red lights through the openings, they brought her back to ground, close to a cemetery, from where she finally returned home in a cab.

Albert Rosales indicates that in Quilmes, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on July 3, 1968 at 11:30 p.m., Alejandra Martinez de Pascucci was walking home when she felt an "invisible force" that pressed down upon her and prevented her from crying out. She suddenly found herself in an enclosed space which "could hold 4 or 5 people" together with two men dressed in metallic luminous clothing and helmets, one of 6 feet tall, the other a bit shorter. There was an intolerable heat; the craft, was round and had small red and green windows. When one of the men pressed a button, the craft began to move, but when she was let out she was still in Quilmes, opposite a cemetery. Rosales indicates FSR Vol.14 #5 as source.


Peter Rogerson indicates that on July 2, 1968, La Cronica reported the story of Alejandra Martinez da Pascucci who said that coming home the previous night at 11:30 p.m. at the corner of Calle Alvear and Calle Savedra, an open undeveloped area of the town of Quilmes which always made her nervous, she had felt an invisible force pressing down and "absorbing" her. The story is that without losing consciousness, she found herself in a baking hot enclosed space inside a round machine with red and green windows. There were two men with her, in metallic clothing which gave off a powerful light, as did their shoes and helmets. One of them was over two meters tall and the other rather shorter. They looked at her and spoke to her in an unintelligible language, then one of the men pressed a button. Shortly afterward she descended with the same sensations, landing smoothly not on Mars as she had feared, but by a cemetery in her own town from where she got a free taxi ride home. Peter Rogerson indicates that the story is from Gordon Creighton, in "A New South American Wave", FSR 14,5, p.23-28, June 11, 1968.

Points to consider:

The case is reported by a newspaper, whose text is not currently available to me, and it seems that no ufological investigation was carried out at all.
