Was it a UFO? Kreskin, Crupi differ

The Amazing Kreskin and KVBC-TV, Channel 3 reporter Steve Crupi
have different interpretations of what happened.


Kreskin, who had predicted a major UFO sighting would occur
Thursday, claims he is so shaken by what happened that, "I will
never do this kind of scenario again."

A skeptical Crupi isn't buying it. He videoed what Kreskin is
claiming to be a sighting about 11 p.m. Thursday near the
Silverton, where Kreskin is appearing.

"Kreskin got up and gave a little speech and tried to hypnotize
the crowd," Crupi said. "Some people who are susceptible
honestly believe they saw some things out there.''

More than three dozen people became hysterical, according to
Kreskin. The gathering -- Kreskin estimates it at 1,000 to
1,500; Crupi at 300 to 500 -- had all but dispersed when a green
light appeared overhead.

Crupi saw the light and went live with the "sighting." "Kreskin
is using as validation that people saw things, because they
showed it on Channel 3. But it was airplanes. It was an unusual
(green) light for an airplane, I'll give them that,'' said
Crupi. "But it was in line with all the other airplanes that
were coming into McCarran at the time. We were standing almost
underneath the south and north approach pattern."

He added, "The green light was conveniently timed to coincide
with our 11 o'clock report."

Crupi added, "If he claims there were UFOs, it's bogus. If he's
claiming that people in their minds thought they saw something
they couldn't explain, then he might have a case."

Kreskin's New York-based publicist issued a release early
Friday, with the headline: "UFO Sighting Broadcast to Thousands
of Homes."

Kreskin made the prediction during a Fox network appearance in
late April and promised to turn over $50,000 to six children's
charities if it didn't occur.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that the prediction
would come true," Kreskin said in the release.
