Although warned to keep silent, staffers at the Hospital Humanitas in Campinas are talking about the dead alien reportedly brought there on January 20, 1996.
Brazilian ufologist Victor Lourenco has provided us with a summary of the article that appeared in Revista UFO (UFO Magazine) in April. The article offers new insights into the UFO crash and subsequent capture of live aliens at Varginha, Minas Gerais state, Brazil on Saturday, January 20, 1996.
Ufologist Ubirajara Franco Rodrigues was the first to investigate the case. He was contacted by Luiza Helena Fatima de Silva, mother of two of the girls who encountered an injured alien at the Jardim Andere at 3:30 p.m. on January 20.
According to Franco and Lourenco, neighbors in the northern section of Varginha confirmed the presence of the Fire Department in the public park at 9:30 a.m. that day. Eyewitness Henrique Jose da Silva saw a fire truck parked beside the Jardim's entrance and a large crowd milling about. "I didn't realize what was happening," he said, "There was a strange pungent odor in the air. I asked the people what was happening, and they said, 'The fire department has captured a strange creature.'"
Captain Alvarenga of the Varginha Fire Department denied the reports of a captured alien. "We are supposed to deal only with the real thing -- from Earth. An extraterrestrial would be very uncommon. The Fire Department couldn't deal with something like that."
Other neighborhood witnesses claim two Army trucks showed up at the park at 10:30 a.m. from the Escola Sargento das Armas in Tres Coracoes, south of Varginha.
One alien was reportedly taken to Varginha's city hospital. The report was denied by hospital director Dr. Adilion Husier, who said, "We couldn't keep an extraterrestrial here. We couldn't deal with it. Nothing but humans."
On January 22, the captured aliens were reportedly transferred to the Hospital Humanitas in Campinas in Sao Paulo state. According to Lourenco, hospital staffers were ordered to remain silent, but now they're talking freely to ufologists.
The hospital's catering staff claims they overheard an orthopedist named Dr. Rogerio telling a nurse, "I don't know what it is. It could be an alien. I have never seen anything like it."
However, Dr. Rogerio denies making that statement and told Revista UFO, "I don't know how you could waste your time with that kind of stuff. It's nonsense."
The caterers also saw two cars with Universidade de Sao Paulo license plates at the hospital on January 21, possibly scientists to assist with an autopsy of the dead alien.
Most intriguing of all, the caterers saw two Americans arrive at the hospital late that morning. Both men "were carrying strange devices," the witnesses said, "The Americans stayed at a big hotel near the hospital."
The best hotels nearest the hospital are the Royal Palm Plaza at Praca Rotatoria 88 and the Hotel Opala Avenida at Avenida Campos Sales 161. A group of Americans was seen at the restaurant Churrascaria Gaucha at Avenida Campos Sales 555 the evening of January 21.
Finally, Revista UFO collected several reports of UFO sightings in southern Brazil at that time. UFOs were seen at Sao Tome de Letras, Tres Coracoes, Conselheiro Lafaiete and Pouso Alegre.
