VIEQUES, Caribbean UFO Cover-Up of the Third Kind
A BOY WHO CAME FROM THE SEA
Mr. Anibal Perez from Vieques, encountered a strange "child" when he was 14 years old. This was in 1982 while he was enjoying a trip to Media Luna Beach, east of Sun Bay beach, on Vieques. He was with his nephew, who was 13 years old, and his nephew's grandmother. The grandmother was the adult in charge of them. He still wonders about what happened that day.
Perez and his nephew were swimming in the sea and playing on the beach. It was a clear, sunny day. Suddenly, something emerged from the sea, approaching them from a distance. It was a child who was about their own age, 12 to 14 years.
They all were in the water and the "kid" approached them in a friendly demeanor, "trying to befriend them," and would not leave their side.
Perez's nephew asked, "What is he doing following us all the time? Do you know him?"
Perez answered that he did not know the "kid" and asked the boy who he was and what it was he wanted. "But he would not talk," he said, "... he kept emitting weird sounds similar to the ones dolphins make."
That is when the boy swam away to deeper water and submerged, disappearing from sight. He emerged a few minutes later and came near the two boys again. The boys couldn't understand how the "kid" was able to stay under water as long as he did without drowning.
"In the palm of his hand," Perez explained, "the boy had something that looked like sand granules, which he began picking at with his other hand and eating from it... and at the same time making gestures, offering some of the stuff to us. He wanted us to eat some of it."
They refused to eat the material, but were amazed to see the strange boy eating the sand-like substance he had apparently brought up from the bottom.
The two boys were growing tired of the intruder's presence, and kept playing in the water close to the shore. The "kid" kept following them everywhere they went. Annoyed, Perez's nephew threw water at him and the "kid" did the same to him, imitating everything they did.
The "kid" swam back to the deep water and submerged once again. Moments later, he again emerged and approached them. This time he had seaweed in his hand, and was eating some of it. He made gestures for them to eat the seaweed, too, but once again was refused.
"We were amazed," stated XXX. "He was eating seaweed from the deep, and something that looked like sand. Who was he? He would not talk. He only made some weird screeching sounds. An hour had already gone by since the "kid" first appeared. There was no one else there. Only my nephew's grandmother and she was at a distance, up on the beach. We later told her about the kid, or whatever he was."
"Why do you say, 'Whatever he was?' we asked.
"Well, my nephew kept asking him who he was and what he wanted, but he wouldn't answer. He kept making those weird noises. We came out of the water for a while, and returned later. He clapped his hands, joyful that we returned.
"We kept asking him questions, and he would only stare at us, making gestures... it looked as if he was concentrating, trying to understand what we were saying. After a while, he began to repeat the things we were saying in Spanish, but his voice had a screechy tone. My nephew was angry because he thought that the "kid" was making fun of us. He spoke some foul words to him, and the "kid" kept on repeating them.
"He looked normal, like any kid. He was white, Caucasian, and about 4 feet 3 inches tall. He was slender and had dark brown eyes and hair. His hair was curled, but not much, and fell down to his neck. He had normal hands with five fingers.
"He had a normal nose and a mouth with fine lips and teeth, which we could see whenever he would repeat what we said or laugh, when we laughed. His ears looked normal, too. He was only wearing a pair of tight fitting, short, white pants. The pants' material seemed normal, like textile."
The only two things that were odd about the "kid" were his ability to stay under water for long periods of time, and the way he talked, making screeching sounds at first, then speaking in broken Spanish with the same voice.
Anibal added, "My nephew pushed him, asking him who he was and what country he came from. He just stared at us for a moment as if thinking of what he was going to say, and then he said, 'Sea...Bottom...Country." He then pointed down to the deep with his finger.
"He then moved away from us, looked at us and said, "Goodbye..humans." He made a gesture to us with his right hand and submerged again to the sea. We waited there for a while, expecting to see him come out again, but he did not resurface. That is when were really shocked because, even though we were very young at the time, we were surprised by what he said. We understood what he meant by those words.
"Even with his strange behavior, I believed that he was a normal kid, until he said those words, 'sea...bottom..country.' To me, he was telling us that he came from the sea. And when he said 'goodbye...humans,' we realized he was not normal, at all.
"Look, if there's life and intelligent beings on our planet, there could very well be life on other planets, too. Perhaps, everything we are seeing here around Vieques has to do with the fact that we are not alone in this universe... that other beings are visiting us.
"There are also some legends about underwater cities. Was this child from one of them? To me, this incident remains a mystery."
