there are plenty of studies that have been done - studies that prove reliability or lack thereof....its not just people mouthing off or telling a story to some news reporter...there are court cases, arrests, legal studies, etc to back up the reliability or lack thereof of witness testimony.

I find stories like this fascinating! The fact that so many witnesses are telling the same story so many years later makes it more credible. I wonder what happened to poor Tanya???????
Tanya. Yes I suspect Tanya saw too much, maybe the occupants of the craft? I certainly think somebody should look into what happened to her.
Hi Jessie, Richard and Joann.
Thank you for your messages and your queries re "the girl in the ambulance". There has been some discussion about this before on this site and also on the Westall Incident's Facebook page (see: www.facebook.com...). Indeed, many people have asked about the student, Tanya, who is mentioned in the story by one of the witnesses, and it is certainly one of the more intriguing and baffling aspects to the Westall story.
The director, Rosie Jones, has been in contact with Tanya and is continuing to follow-up various leads resulting from that contact, and in relation to the relevant memories shared by Jacquie in the film, and by other witnesses. (Other witnesses have stories very similar to the one shared in the film by Jacquie.) In short, Tanya is alive and well and lives now in Sydney, and we are hoping to hear more about what she remembers about the flying saucer incident in the near future. Due to age and ill-health, Tanya's parents may not be able to shed much more light on events, but we are keeping the channels of communication open as best we can in relation to Tanya's story, and the story of at least two other girls who apparently were also adversely affected (at least at the time) by what they saw/experienced. One of those girls has been contacted by me, the other I have not yet been able to locate. In relation to the ambulance officers, the Ambulance Service of Victoria has informed me that records dating back that far have been destroyed. I have not given up on tracking down the original ambulance officers who attended, but it's not an easy task. I was, however, recently able to locate the apparently last-surviving fireman from the Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Brigade station which responded that day at Westall (a Country Fire Authority crew responded from another station as well)...so there's still hope!

If this was a test of some kind of secret human made craft, would you really risk exposure by dropping by a school. Doesn't really make sense.
Either a mass illusion/hysteria or something unworldly I would suggest.

Fascinating that seemingly no amount of eyewitness testimony is sufficient, but all over the world billions of people believe in a multiply-translated ancient document regaling us with tales of burning bushes (one witness), virgin births with supernatural fathers (witnesses? Dicey.) etc.
Try to find some proof in the bible or the koran or any other religious document. But of course, 'belief' in this event is sufficient, especially when there's a critical mass of believers...

While i think most people here appreciate the effort you went to it doesn't make up for the fact you claimed to have 'the' proof but provided none at all.

The infamous witch trials of Salem and other places consisted primarily of witness testimony.
This is why we require more concrete evidence in real criminal cases that just witness testimony.

I see so few good new threads these days. This one is an example of what I want to see. S&F. Now to watch the video on page 1.
