The Radioactive and Explosive Stones That Come From Sea

At Piriapolis city, in Punta Negra’s beach, the retired military, fisherman in his spare time, 78 years – Juan Carlos Bézon, was walking on the seaside when he noticed a small stone, just over 3 inches wide. He noted that it had a strong color in a fluorescent green hue, flecked with dark spots, brownish.

He picked up the object. It had a rough texture – and placed it in his pants pocket. In about five minutes, the man began to feel a warming sensation in the thigh.

It was the stone that – apparently – started a spontaneous reaction, radiating heat. Immediately Bézon began to undress and, luckily, as was wearing two pairs of pants, apart from underwear, escaped a more serious injury in the leg.

However, he could not avoid second-degree burns, severe in one hand and small lesions in the other. And before anyone could observe the strange material, the thing – simply exploded, disintegrating itself.

The remains of the victim’s clothing were sent to Montevideo (country’s capital) where will be submitted to scientific expertise. Given these facts, the authorities of Piriapolis city have determined a careful patrolling of coastal area in search of similar objects.
