The Issik Kul Lake Swimmers were a group of swimming humanoid creatures encountered by reconnaissance divers ("frogmen") of the Trans-Baikal and West Siberian military regions. The training exercises had been taking place at the Issik Kul Lake, a deep water lake in the Transiliysk Ala Tau area. There, during their military training dives, the frogmen had encountered mysterious underwater swimmers. (ufosightingshotspot.blogspot.com)

Appearance[]

The entities were described as humanoid, but almost three meters in height. The swimmers were clad in tight-fitting silvery suits, despite icy-cold water temperatures. At the depth of fifty meters, these "swimmers" had neither scuba diving equipment ("aqualungs"), nor any other equipment, only sphere-like helmets concealing their heads.

Trivia[]

  • the local military commander decided to capture one of the creatures. With that purpose in mind, a special group of seven divers, under the command of an officer, had been dispatched. As the frogman tried to cover the creature with a net, the entire group was thrown out of the deep waters to the surface by some powerful force. (ufosightingshotspot.blogspot.com)
