David Marler is one of the great treasures of modern UFO research. He is the author of an important book on Triangular UFOs, and is nearly as well known for his exemplary work on the 1942 Battle of Los Angeles, as well as some other cases, like the 1950 UFO “armada” incident over Farmington, New Mexico. Here he discusses a little-known incident from 1964 that is quite extraordinary. An object seemingly targeting an 8-year-old boy to attack and cause severe burns requiring over a week of hospitalization. There was some newspaper coverage on this at the time, and very odd things about this case. David found the boy, who is now in his sixties. Amazing story.
