E.T. replica rescued by coastguardsJanuary 3rd, 2012 - 9:46 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
San Diego, Jan 3 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A life-size E.T. replica has been reunited with its owner after it was stolen from her home. Rescuers received a call from a member of the public when the alien replica was found floating on the surface of the sea.
It was initially feared that the figure was that of a human. When it was pulled up, it turned out to be a dummy. It belonged to 76-year-old pensioner Margaret Wells before robbers took it away from her home.
Wells say the replica along with her jewelry and iron were stolen from her house last September. The police reunited the replica with Wells based on the report that she had earlier made concerning the robbery.
Wells told reporters that, “The police rang and said somebody has found a body in the Solent and it belongs to you - it’s E.T. I always knew E.T. would come home. He has lost a finger and looks a bit roughed up. But he has a smile on his face.”
The replica was made by Wells’ daughter. The Daily Mail reports that she took three months to finally get the replica done.
The model is based on Steven Spielberg’s 1982 alien thriller The Extra-Terrestria.
