True or not true ??? You decide !
Miami, Fla. Experts are baffled by the case of a man who dove into
his hotel swimming pool and emerged in a backyard hot tub eight miles away!
Authorities confirm that a Wichita, KA. tourist
was taken into custody after police were called to the home of Miami resident Ralph Morily.
Morily summoned authorities after discovering the man in his familys
spa around noon on Saturday, November 13 the man has not been charged with any crime but
is being held for psychological evaluation. Morily
said he and his wife Donna were sitting in lounge chairs in their yard when the man
suddenly appeared, dazed and disoriented, in the tub.
I cant figure out where
he could have come from, Morily said. One
moment the hot tub was empty, the next moment there was a man in it.
Morily says he tried to speak with him, but the
man was incoherent and appeared frightened. Cops
say the mans wife filed a missing persons report after she and the couples
two teenage sons watched him dive into the deep end of their hotel pool and vanish.
The alarmed wife notified the lifeguards and the
pool was cleared.
When a search of the pool failed to produce her husband, she called the
police. The worried family was notified hours
later that the missing man had been found. The
time that he disappeared corresponds to the time he emerged in the Morilys spa.
The case is currently under investigation. Incredibly, this is not the first such incident on
In 1926, a French woman named Simone LaVille disappeared while attempting to
swim the English Channel. The entire
eight-man crew of the rescue boat that followed her watched her suddenly fade out of
sight. After a three-hour search, they
reported the woman missing only to learn that she had emerged in a farmers
pond 17 miles south of London.
