The alien abduction of an elderly man in Emilcin, Poland

"I solemnly swear to God, that my account about the encounter with extraterrestrials on May 10, 1978, is absolutely true. God is my witness that I am telling the truth." That was the oath signed by Jan Wolski, a devout Roman Catholic, in the presence of two witnesses and convinced the almost 100-year-old local priest that Wolski was really telling the truth.

This is a story of an elderly Polish farmer that was abducted by aliens at a time when Poland was a communist country controlled by the Soviet Union. Due to this alien abduction, which was the first one recorded in Poland, it became the first country in the then communist world to develop a civilian ufological movement with organizations. 

This is the most famous and best known alien encounter/abduction in Poland. It has become so popular that in 2005 a monument was erected in Emilcin, Poland, at the site where the abduction is said to have taken place, to commemorate the alien abduction of Jan Wolski. The text in Polish, reads: "On May 10, 1978 in Emilcin a UFO object landed. The truth will astonish us in the future".

Moreover, Wolski had no exposure to accounts of UFOs since he had no TV set, not even a radio, and only read newspapers when his sons brought them home.

The story:

On May 10, 1978, early in the morning a few minutes after eight, 71 year old Jan Wolski was riding a horse-drawn wagon through a forest near his village (Emilcin, Poland). Suddenly he saw walking in front of him two small humanoids (about 1.4 to 1.5 meters tall), dressed in tight-fitting black suits, wearing hoods and heading in the same direction on the road. They moved in a strange awkward manner, keeping their legs wide apart.

When Wolski began to overtake them, they unexpectedly jumped on both sides on his wagon surprising him of their agility. At this point, the wagon jerked as if there were a disproportionate increase in payload. Sitting on both sides on the wagon behind Wolski, they began conversing with each other in a strange language, consisting of many high-pitched and shrilled sounds similar to pigeons and the giggles of hyenas. This aroused his suspicions that they were not human.

"I looked at them from my side", said Wolski, "Strangely, they were dressed in tight blackish outfits, only their faces and hands were bare. I thought they might be Chinese, but I didn’t ask. Their legs were dangling out from the wagon and it was obvious that they had odd shoes, the same color as the rest of the clothes, but the front end were in the shape of fins. They also had between their fingers a small membrane - from the base to the end of the first finger joint. Nothing intelligible was heard from them ... they were like 'twittering' with each other." 

When they got to about three hundred meters from a small forest clearing in front of the wagon, Wolski noticed against a wall of trees an unusual silver vehicle hovering around 4 to 5 meters above the ground.

Its shape roughly resembled a two-rotor helicopter. The vehicle had no windows and its only opening was a door located in the center of the front wall. The door jamb revealed the thickness of the vehicle walls estimated at around 20 cm. The UFO did not have any collar, wings, legs or wheels. The only things that protruded from its exterior were four cylinder-shaped devices placed at each corner. Each of these four "cylinders" contained vertical spirals, described by Wolski as resembling "drill bits". They swirled around very fast, but did not blow any air. As they spun, it appeared to be making a weak buzzing sound, somewhat similar to the sound produced by a bumblebee. 

From the door of the vehicle dropped a small elevator platform attached to four cables. Suddenly, one of aliens stepped on it "and with a friendly gesture invited me to get on it", Wolski said. Instantly it ascended to where two other humanoids were waiting inside the vehicle. The humanoid that had remained downstairs came up to join the other three. The vehicle had four crew members.

Jan Wolski remembered a few things while staying in the alien vessel. Inside the vehicle was a single rectangular room. Its walls were completely impervious to light. There was also no window. It was dark and the only source of illumination was the opened door. The door was wrapped in a kind of a vertical tube located on the left of the door frame. The floor, walls and the flat ceiling looked as if they were cast from a hard material similar to glass. The room was empty, with no furniture, contained only small black benches attached to the walls with 60 cm cables (two cables per seat). Wolski did not notice any switches or light indicators. Near the entrance lay a dozen live birds: crows or jackdaws. The ceiling was semicircular and along it, ran a black "pipe".

Wolski said, "They were a little shorter than Earthlings, they had dark green faces and wore a tight-fitting black/gray outfits which covered the whole body. There were no buttons or zippers on it. They had slanted eyes and a mouth which resembled a thin colorless line. Each of the fingers was surrounded by a membrane. They spoke with each other in an unknown language".

At some point, when he entered the room, they forced him to get undressed. Wolski said, "They told me, in sign language, that I had to strip naked ...  They began to examine me with some disks which looked like plates. When I was naked they ate something horribly transparent that looked like ice. Then one stood near a wall with two small holes drilled into it. He inserted a small black rod inside the holes and turned them as if adjusting something. He did that several times"

A few minutes after they examined him, he was allowed to get dressed. The visit was apparently over. He stood on the doorway, turned to face the aliens, placed his hat on the chest and bowed his head and upper torso in a polite gesture. They bow back at him. Wolski further said: "Anyway, they were always very kind to me. They wanted me to eat some strange icicles, but I already wanted to go home. I hurried a few meters downstairs where my wagon was and I was just thinking about how soon to get home and tell everyone about what happened to me. "

When Wolski arrived at his house, he tied the reins of his horse and ran inside. There he alerted his two sons and notified the neighbors. They went to look for the UFO, but there was no longer a trace of it. Obviously there were not a trace where the UFO was hovering in the air, but around the soft ground the aliens left a lot of traces of their presence in the form of footprints. As such, the woods and the meadow were full of footprints of these UFOnauts. Unfortunately, in the next few days they were completely trampled by hundreds of people and the police.

When he fled to his house, he did not record the time of his departure from the vehicle. A five-year boy saw the departing object flying low over the village of Emilcin and described it as a "flying bus". That witness reported that he saw a square hatch underneath the vehicle. Shortly after passing over the village, the vehicle accelerated, produced a loud "bang" (like a sonic boom) and disappeared from view. A few minutes before Jan Wolski's announcement of what he had experienced, some residents in Emilcin heard an awful rumble coming from underground.

The following is a comic strip of the Jan Wolski abduction which was written originally in Polish. I always wanted to translate this fascinating comic strip, but I don’t speak Polish. I checked all over the internet to see if I find it in English or Spanish, but there was none. Luckily, I found it in French, the only other language that it was written besides Polish, which made it easier for me to translate it into English and Spanish. The following article was translated by Nelson C. Rivera (PRUFON).

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.
