Piedra misteriosa en Piriápolis
He picked up the object. It had a rough texture - and placed it in his pants pocket. In about five minutes, the man began to feel a warming sensation in the thigh.
It was the stone that - apparently - started a spontaneous reaction, radiating heat. Immediately Bézon began to undress and, luckily, as was wearing two pairs of pants, apart from underwear, escaped a more serious injury in the leg.
However, he could not avoid second-degree burns, severe in one hand and small lesions in the other. And before anyone could observe the strange material, the thing - simply exploded, disintegrating itself.
The remains of the victim's clothing were sent to Montevideo (country's capital) where will be submitted to scientific expertise. Given these facts, the authorities of Piriapolis city have determined a careful patrolling of coastal area in search of similar objects.

Indeed, is not the first time that this kind of strange incident occurs. Stones that go into thermal ignition on contact with the human body, even when protected by clothing have appeared in some beachs of the world.
And in these cases, of these strange boulders that burn and explode, the material was collected, always, on beaches - in the sands near the sea. In 2012, an episode in California-USA, made international headlines (see below the Related Link).
