Associated Press, June 20, 1993: FAITHFUL INJURE EYES LOOKING FOR MIRACLE Madrid, Spain - More than 30 people suffered eye injuries when they stared at the sun awaiting an appearance of the Virgin Mary predicted by an 18-year old religious seer, a daily newspaper reported Saturday. About 1,000 people went to Baza, 50 miles northeast of Grenada, on June 11 after Esteban Sanchez Casas announced Virgin Mary would appear miraculously if his followers looked directly at the sun, El Pais reported. Instead, more than 30 people required hospital treatment for eye injuries, and at least eight of them suffered irreversible damage.
