BACOLOD CITY, Philippines—A strange apparition has appeared on a video taken by a member of the police Regional Mobile Group (RMG) using his cellular phone.
But Negros Occidental Board Member Nehemias de la Cruz said no one could explain the image of a woman in white on the video.
On January 15, the RMG personnel were conducting a mapping operation at Spur 21, in the village of Kumaliskis, Don Salvador Benedicto (DSB) when one of them took the video of his companions and the mountainous area at noon, De la Cruz said on Monday.
The RMG personnel was surprised when they returned to their headquarters in the town at about 6 p.m., to see a female in a white flowing gown on the side of a mountain, said De la Cruz, a former mayor of Don Salvador Benedicto.
The RMG men said that when the video was taken, there was no woman in white on the mountain or anywhere near, so her appearance was a mystery, he added.
On Monday, De La Cruz showed the media a copy of the video of the woman in white.
Five years ago, a town council member of Don Salvador Benedicto was also surprised to see a woman in white appear in a family picture, De la Cruz said.
The woman in white at Spur 21 seen in the video was not the only strange thing that has happened in Kumaliskis this month.
About 24 persons who were planting trees in the village, early this month, also alleged that a rainbow drained them of their energy and caused one of their companions, 15-year-old Jenessa Refuela, to collapse, DSB Mayor Laurence Marxlen De la Cruz said last January 11.
De La Cruz said the residents claimed that they saw a rainbow locally called "balangaw" near a creek followed by a sudden bright light, after which, Refuela, who appeared to levitate, lost consciousness.
