New Zealand Man 'Freaked Out' After Seeing UFO

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A West Coast man is `freaked out` after coming face to face last night with what he claims was a UFO, parked on the road outside the entrance to Shantytown.


`I was changing a CD as I was driving and when I looked up I saw what looked like a car without its lights on, stopped in the middle of the road outside Shantytown. I slammed on my brakes and my eyes were still trying to focus, when suddenly the thing just lit up and shot into the sky,` Mr Robert said.

He claims that immediately following the incident he lost all cellphone reception, his vision was blurry and his eyes watery for about an hour afterwards."

Isn`t it interesting that an intergalactic traveler never lands his flying saucer on the front lawn of the White House or at 10 Downing Street?

UFO pilots must have faulty GPS because they invariably land in a trailer park, a forest, or in this case on a road leading to Shantytown.

Shantytown is a tourist attraction in the South Island of New Zealand.  The generic term "shanty town" refers to squatter settlements built on the periphery of cities, lacking proper sanitation, potable water, and electricity.

There are many believers in UFO`s and other paranormal subjects in shanty towns. If I lived in a corrugated metal house without running water and electricity, I would dream that extraterrestrial beings would beam me up from my miserable existence.

This eyewitness had blurry vision and watery eyes; it seems to me if he gave up the booze he`d stop seeing UFO`s.
