    Except that there was no girl to be rescued at the Enrique Rebsámen school and everyone was accounted for.

    According to The Guardian, the story originated with the Mexican Navy, and not Los Topos. Perhaps Scientology thought they could steal credit for the rescue without realizing that it was bogus? In any event, their press release is taking credit for something that never happened.

    The story might have originated from Los Topos after all:

    Not surprising since normalizing lies is normal in scientology.
    And according to drug-addled L. Ron Hubbard, "It's a PR world."

    Frida Sofia, the nonexistent girl, is not Paulina Gomez, the girl who was rescued.

    Unlike the Scientology VMs, Los Topos have actual rescue training, and they've rescued quite a number of people in this and other emergencies. I don't know how they got conned into partnering with Scn, but their courage and skills are real.

    Scientology's claim:
    That's Thursday morning.

    Guardian:
    It seems like the same story, same school, different name, and it never happened.
    Los Topos may be real, but Scientology is doing their press releases.
  6. Supplying pictures of the event would add some credibility to the Scientologists story , but how likely is that?
    Not to mention the fact that had they actually given any assistance at all it would in all probability been brought to the notice of the general public.
    Their press office would surely be on it if it were the case.
