"Remote Sea Monster"
Reverend Solomona and his son were fishing off the twin atolls of Manihiki and Rakahanga in the Cook Islands when they spotted birds circling over an area. Thinking that this signaled the presence of fish, they sailed to the location.
A creature, described as resembling a lizard but bigger than a whale, jutted its head out of the water, terrifying the two, who went home.
The Cook Islands News Daily, which reported it on September 29, 1993, said there were no further sightings.
